Potential[edit]

Socialist Party[edit]

Based on previous presidential elections, President François Hollande is likely to run for his second and final term. However, media has speculated that the Socialist Party will nominate a different candidate, due to Hollande's low approval ratings.[21] Hollande has suggested that he may not stand for re-election if he fails to reduce the French unemployment rate by the end of his term.[22] He stated this point again in February 2015, saying that "if after five years, a President cannot meet the objective that he had when he got elected, he cannot be once more a candidate for the highest office in the country".[23]

In June 2016 it was announced that the Socialist Party would choose their candidate in an open primary, as happened in 2011.[24]
