    * MAIN CONTENDERS

    - Macron.
    The 43-year old incumbent, was elected on a centrist platform but his policies veered to the right.

    - Le Pen. This is the 53-year old lawmaker's third presidential election bid. In 2017 she made it to the second round, and polls had long predicted she would again this time, but Zemmour or Pecresse could thwart her hopes.

    - Zemmour. The 63-year old journalist's candidacy was the first major surprise of this campaign. He says Mohammed should be banned as a first name in France and has been convicted in the past for inciting hatred.

    - Pecresse, 54. Head of Paris' Ile-de-France region and representing Les Republicains. Some opinion polls show she could have a shot at becoming France's first female president.

    - On the left, the Greens' Yannick Jadot, the Socialists' Anne Hidalgo, and hard-left Jean-Luc Melenchon are the most prominent in a long list of candidates seen as having little chance of qualifying for the run-off.
