paris - Voters go to the polls in France on Sunday for the second and decisive round of presidential elections. The battle goes between the social-liberal Emmanuel Macron of the party and marche! And the National National Marine Le Pen of the Front National.

When the polls are correct Macron becomes the new occupant of the Élysée. The polls have shown a great lead for Macron for weeks. He could count on about 60 percent of the votes, against 40 for Le Pen. The polls predicted the outcome of the first round almost accurately.

In the first round on March 23, Macron and Le Pen defeated the candidates from the traditional right and left parties. For the first time, they are not represented in the decisive round.


Over 66,000 polling stations open the doors at 08.00 on Sunday. Most of the 47.5 million French voters have until 19.00 hours to vote. In the major cities, polls are open for one hour. As in the first round, tens of thousands of police officers and soldiers are deployed for the security of the ballot box.
