Facts about politics in France

  • France has changed its form of government nine times since the Revolution which ended King Louis rule in 1789. These have included 5 republics, 2 empires and 2  constitutional monarchies.
  • France is now a representative democracy with an elected President as head of state (five year terms) and a Prime Minister as head of government.
  • French election days are always a Sunday and can take two rounds. If a single winner with a majority is not elected on the first round, then the  candidates with the highest percentage of votes compete in the second round of voting. Voting is not compulsory.
  • Voting for the President is separate to voting for individual members of the national Parliament.
  • Elections also take place for a variety of local government elections (region, department, council).
