French papers react to alliance between centrists Macron and Bayrou

FRENCH PAPERS - Thurs. 23.02.17: Papers react to yesterday's surprise announcement of a centrist alliance between Emmanuel Macron and longstanding centrist politician François Bayrou. Le Parisien calls it a "marriage of convenience". The daily wonders if two really is better than one - especially when the pair don't necessarily see eye to eye, as FranceInfo reminds us. Meanwhile, right-wing daily Le Figaro lashes out at Bayrou for "once again choosing the left".
