How can we improve our health system, preserve the population’s purchasing power, fight against climate change, ensure everyone’s safety? What response to the war in Ukraine? What migration policy do we want? What public debt will we leave to our children after the Covid-19 crisis? These issues, and many others, are at the heart of the presidential campaign debates and should guide voters’ decisions for the April 10 and 24 elections.

The twelve candidates who collected the five hundred sponsorships necessary to run for the presidential election are now known: Nathalie Arthaud, Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, Anne Hidalgo, Yannick Jadot, Jean Lassalle, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, Marine Le Pen, Emmanuel Macron, Valérie Pécresse, Philippe Poutou, Fabien Roussel and Eric Zemmour.

Our program comparator summarizes nearly a thousand proposals from these political personalities, who represent a broad ideological spectrum ranging from the far left to the far right, and what differentiates them on a hundred themes. We added, on March 17, the proposals of the outgoing president, who entered the campaign late.

This tool, which makes it possible to filter the proposals by theme or by candidate, will be updated regularly throughout the presidential campaign.

This comparator summarizes the proposals appearing on the official sites of the candidates, supplemented by certain major media interventions or clarifications that we requested, at the beginning of February, from their respective campaign teams.

We have defined a hundred themes, but we only display those that match the proposals of at least four candidates. The complete program of each of them is available by clicking on its name.

Candidates and themes are subject to change over the course of the campaign. This article is the result of a collective work. If you find an error, you can report it to:
