“I am in favor of a coordinated restructuring of the Greek debt, keeping Greece in the Eurozone,” Emmanuel Macron
“I am a supporter of the principle of restructuring the Greek debt and the stay of Greece in the Eurozone because, because the system is now unsustainable, we need to put in place safety guards, to find a collective agreement, but we all know that we have to get there in every way,” the former finance minister of socialist Francois Hollande told French MediaPart.
“The one choice is to do this, the other is to take a collective decision, to lead this struggle …”, Macron said adding “I will lead this fight, as I believe it is inevitable and will restore our collective credibility.”
Presidential candidate Macron stressed “there is no chance (for Greece) to rebuild a stable economy, to stabilize within the euro with the existing level of debt.”
According to latest polls, Macron leads with 62% ahead of marine LePen who receives 38%. Abstention is expected to hit record: one if four French voters is expected to remain away from the voting booth.
