Latest update : 2012-04-26

Nicolas Sarkozy versus François Hollande. The stage is set for round two of the French presidential election. But it has been upset by the record performance of the far-right National Front leader Marine Le Pen, who outperformed her father's shock result back in 2002.

On the set:

  • Jean-Marc Gonin, Senior writer, Le Figaro Magazine;
  • Philip Turle, Journalist, RFI.
