TF1 will broadcast a debate between the five leading candidates for the presidential election at 21h tonight. There are six other candidates who will have a chance to express their views in the chain's 20h news programme.
But the five chosen all have over 10% intentions to vote in recent polls. Macron and Le Pen lead the polls at around 25% each, with Fillon at 17% and the left candidates Hamon and Melenchon have about 12% each. The first televised debate will give these contestants a chance to impress the voters and those of us without a vote a glimpse of our next president.
