A week after the Hungarian parliamentary elections, we are once again sailing abroad with our Election Night series. This time, the first round of the French presidential election is on the horizon, where we can find out who will be the two candidates for the second round. The event will be held in French, so if you speak the language, you can follow the event in a truly authentic setting.

Our Election Night series is not only designed to introduce to the audience the political and the electoral system of a country, but it also seeks to engage them in its culture. So if you're interested in the French culture and gastronomy, this is the best place to discuss about the French campaign, the candidates and the election results over some macarons and croissants.

The program will be in French with language interpretation in Hungarian. There will be no simultaneous interpretation in English.
