MADRID, April 24 (EDITIONS)
France celebrates the second round of its presidential elections this Sunday, in which candidates Emmanuel Macron (The Republic in March) and Marine Le Pen (National Group) will fight to retain or win the country’s presidency. Both were the candidates with the most votes on the first ballot, although it was Macron who outvoted the far-right candidate.
In 2017, Macron and Le Pen faced each other in the second round of the French presidential elections and the candidate from La República en Marcha clearly prevailed with more than 66% of the votes. The polls point to a new victory for the incumbent President of the Republic, although they predict a much tighter result.
Below are the turnout and updated results of the second round of the French elections (Waiting for the first results):
