- Story Text: The IOC Evaluation Commission arrived for a meeting with French president Emmanuel Macron at the Elysee Palace in Paris on Tuesday (May 16) as part of the process to decide which city will host the 2024 Olympic Games.
Centrist Macron, who took power on Sunday (May 14), has pledged his support for the French bid.
Paris's only rival to host the Games is Los Angeles, whose bid was assessed by the IOC evaluation commission last week.
The final IOC vote will be held on Sept. 13 in Lima, Peru.
