Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen both reject the left-right divide in French politics, either claiming to incarnate it en même temps, or being beyond it. They propose new oppositions – for Macron, progressives vs. reactionaries, for Le Pen, patriots vs. globalists. Both refuse to acknowledge the other's new framework or their respective place in it. What are the consequences for this imposed shift from understanding French politics as left vs. right to center vs. extremes?
