PARIS, March 25 — The Paris book fair attracted presidential candidates Emmanuel Macron and Jean-Luc Melenchon when it kicked off yesterday during a tense campaign where books and newspaper articles have shed light on the contenders' lives and their views.
The firebrand leader of “La France Insoumise” signed copies of his recently released book On Virtue, in which he denounces the influence of money in politics, which he says has led to a loss of faith in public leaders.
Centrist candidate and presidential election frontrunner Emmanuel Macron launched his political manifesto in a book entitled Revolution.
In the French presidential campaign, books play a major role. Every major candidate, at the exception of far-right National front leader, Marine Le Pen, released a book to promote ideas and propositions. — Reuters
