Today, 18th March 2017, the full official list of presidential candidates will be published by the Conseil Constitutionnel. To be accepted to the ballot a candidate must have 500 "parrainages" from elected officials (eg maires) from at least 30 departments. Eight candidates have already passed the threshold and three more are hoping that the Council will endorse their numbers today.
The first round of the election is on 23rd April, the second round two weeks later on 7th May.
