Far-Right Marine Le Pen to face Emmanuel Macron in French Presidential run-off - BBC News

Emmanuel Macron will face the far-right candidate Marine Le Pen in the deciding second round of the French presidential election.

Exit polls from the first round indicate that President Macron won around 28% of the vote, with Marine Le Pen taking around 23% of the vote. That’s the best result she’s had at this stage in any of her presidential campaigns.

Opinion polls suggest the second round vote could be very close, with one survey suggesting Mr Macron coujld have a lead of just 1% over his rival, well within the margin of error.
