Presidential 2022. Hunting and animals: the programs of Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen

Both candidates are against any ban on hunting. (©Republican Chronicle)

At least one theme on which the two finalists are closer: hunting and animal rights.

If there is no consensus between Emmanuel Macron (La République en Marche) and Marine Le Pen (National Rally), both are for hunting, and for one strengthening animal rights.

All the same, the candidate president goes further in the right of the hunters and the deputy of the North deepens more on the right of the animals.

One day, one theme

While waiting for the polls to deliver their verdict, actu.fr offers you every day, until the end of the campaign, Friday April 22, to compare the programs of the candidates in computer graphics.
