Macron heads south for start of nationwide, pre-campaign tour


French President Emmanuel Macron begins his nationwide tour on Wednesday ahead of next year's presidential election, in a risky repeat of previous meet-and-greet initiatives that saw him heckled by angry voters. The 43-year-old centrist, widely expected to seek a second term in polls next April and May, will begin what he calls the task of "measuring the country's pulse" in picturesque villages in southwest France. Around a dozen stops are planned over the next two months, in a sign that the former investment banker has an eye on regional elections on June 20 and 27, as well as his own personal political test next year.
