The Next French presidential election is scheduled to be held in April and May 2017. However, it might be held earlier under exceptional circumstances (resignation or death of the President).

Incumbent President François Hollande is likely to run for his second and final term. Le Figaro has speculated that the Socialist Party will nominate a different candidate, due to Hollande's low approval ratings.[1]
