French Presidential Election: Second Round
Francois Hollande, a mild-mannered French Socialist, is heading into a presidential runoff election with the upper hand over incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy after winning the most votes in the first round of voting.
However, the nearly one in five voters who chose far right candidate Marine Le Pen may hold the key to victory in the decisive vote on Sunday, 6 May.
Hollande remains favourite to win the runoff after besting Sarkozy in the first round.
