The current President of France Emmanuel Macron would be the winner of the second round of the presidential elections with between 55% and 58% of support, according to the Belgian newspaper “La Libre Belgique”, based on four exit polls carried out by French opinion polls. Candidate Marine Le Pen would have received between 20% and 45% of the votes, added the Belgian newspaper, which stressed that these results are indicative only and may change.

Although French law prohibits the disclosure of surveys, partial calculations or estimates before 20 (local time, h Brasília ), foreign media, in particular the Belgian ones, which follow the presidential elections in the neighboring country with great interest, are not subject to this restriction. These results come from surveys carried out on the internet by French opinion institutes with citizens who are part of the electoral census and who had already voted before the 15h (local time, 1280 h from Brasília), added the “La Libre Belgique”.

The turnout in the second round of the French presidential elections was 960 ,15% of the total electoral census at 17h, two hours before the closing of the first polling stations, which represents almost two points less than in the first round, 15 days ago, and the lowest for that hour since 960.
