French nationalist candidate Marine Le Pen and incumbent Emanuel Macron will face off in the second round of elections in the French presidential election.
Le Pen ran on immigration, borders, and lifting the burden on the working class. Macron spent the last month consumed by the Russian War on Ukraine.
Turnout was high in the rural areas.
France, presidential election today:
Turnout is higher than 70% at 17:00 CEST in several rural departments. However, it collapses in the Parisian agglomeration: only 50% voted in Seine-Saint-Denis and Paris, 10 points less than in 2017.
