The people of France would be voting in the first round to select their President. The country has been witnessing few terrorist attacks in the past few weeks and in the wake of election, the Government has deployed some 50,000 security personnel to ensure that the election gets carried out without any incidents.
The candidates who are in the fray are:
Marine Le Pen – National Front
Francois Fillon – Republicans (Which saw Nicolas Sarkozy and Jacques Chirac as Presidents)
Emmanuel Macron – Independent
Benoit Hamon – Socialist
Jean-Luc Melenchon – France Insoumise
This is one of the most unpredictable elections in France and at the present moment, surveys suggest Emmanuel Macron leads the exit survey followed by Marine Le Pen.
Both Marine Le Pen and Francois Fillon were being investigated for fake jobs but under different perspectives.
