The National Council of Evangelicals in France (CNEF) issued a “convictions” document ahead of the election, commenting from a Christian point of view on issues like freedom of worship and speech, Dignity of the human being, Education and the protection of the environment.



The European Evangelical Alliance (EEA) also expressed its concern after the rise of “populism” and called Christians to pray “for the emergence of healthy political figures”.
