French newspaper Le Monde is launching an English version of its website on Thursday to win over international subscribers in the runup to a potentially volatile presidential election.

The leading French daily, with 425,000 digital subscribers to date, plans to reach 1 million paying readers in the next two to three years, with a quarter of them reading the English version, Le Monde’s chairman said in an interview with Bloomberg this week.
