Centrist Emmanuel Macron has extended his lead in the polls on the final day of the turbulent French election campaign.
According to Elabe, he’s expected to win 62% of the votes, compared to 38% for his far-right rival Marine Le Pen.
POLL: French presidential election— The Spectator Index (@spectatorindex) May 5, 2017
Le Pen: 38%
The election is seen as the most important in France for decades – with the country’s position in Europe at stake.
Political newcomer Macron wants closer European cooperation and a more open economy.
While the National Front’s Le Pen wants to close borders and quit the Euro.
A separate poll by Odoxa predicts a quarter of the French electorate will abstain from Sunday’s vote – many of them left wing voters frustrated with the choice facing them.
It would be one of the highest abstention rates for decades.
