Macron Will Face Far-Right Challenger Le Pen In The Second Round Of France's Presidential Election

According to exit polls, French President Emmanuel Macron and his far-right opponent Marine Le Pen won the first round of presidential elections on Sunday, and will square off in the final vote on April 24.

According to a flurry of early forecasts and exit polls, President Macron received 28.1-29.5 percent of the vote, while Le Pen received 23.3-24.4 percent. The many estimates indicated varying results, but all pointed to a runoff between Macron and Le Pen in two weeks, with the distance between the two candidates not as wide as some political pundits had predicted.

According to reports, voter turnout was 4% lower than in 2017.

With around 20% of the vote, left-wing contender Jean-Luc Mélenchon finished in third out of 12 candidates. After the exit polls were released, the majority of the mainstream contenders who did not advance to the runoff instantly embraced Macron. “There must not be a single vote for Le Pen in the second round,” Mélenchon reminded his supporters.

In a speech Sunday night, Macron warned against complacency, saying that “nothing is decided” and that he must work hard to persuade more people to vote for him.
