Macron throws jabs on campaign trail

STORY: With just three days to go before Sunday's election run-off, a survey by OpinionWay/Kea Partners indicates that Macron could win a new term with 56 per cent of the vote.

Uncertainty over the final result remained high as the poll also showed that just 72 per cent expected to cast their vote - a figure which would mark the lowest turnout since 1969.

If Macron wins he could face a difficult second term, with voters of all stripes likely to take to the streets again over his plan to continue his pro-business reforms.

If Le Pen wins, radical changes to France's domestic and international policies would be expected, and street protests could start immediately.
