The race to win the French presidential election has entered its final few days with Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen both vying to win over the electorate.
The two candidates will face off in the second round on May 7, where Macron is widely tipped to become the president of France.
According to recent polling by Elabe, he would take 65 per cent of the vote in a second-round run-off against Le Pen.
It is expected that Macron – a centrist – should be able to attract a wider spectrum of second-round voters than Le Pen, pulling in left-leaning voters from Hamon and Mélenchon as well as those leaning to the right that voted Fillon in the first round.
