RFI is starting the countdown to the French presidential election. Campaign chronicles brings you an in-depth look at the candidates and the issues. A co-production with France 24 television, we bring you news from the campaign trail and analysis.
Campaigning is over and there are no more public appearances before Sunday's presidential face-off between Socialist François Hollande, and incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy.
Last Sunday's first round whittled the 10 candidates down to two.
This is it! Tomorrow is voting day, the first round. Candidates wrapped up their campaigns on Friday – as they are not allowed to make public appearances the day before the vote.
This was the first of two weeks of official campaigning for France’s 10 presidential candidates.
