French presidential candidate pledges to protect middle class

Centrist presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron said Tuesday that he will be the defender of France's middle classes, which he says have been ignored by left and right.

Macron, former economy minister, revealed his electoral manisfesto early last week, which included proposal to cut the size of both chambers of parliament by a third. He pledged to ensure equal division of social welfare, enhance business privatization, protect underprivileged people, increase subsidy for poor and old people.
