Emmanuel Macron or Marine Le Pen?

While the remake of the second round of 2017 did not cause a jump in the participation of French voters – this being estimated by our partner Ipsos Sopra-Steria at 72%, down 1.7 points compared to the first turn – the suspense remains intact.

The results of the presidential election will be known from 8 p.m.

Follow the election night with our special on the France 24 channel and our liveblog on our website.
