The first round of the French presidential election was held on April 23.
As none of the 11 candidates won more than 50 percent, the vote goes to a second round. That run-off election will be held on May 7 between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen - the two candidates who won most votes on April 23.
Once elected, the French president can serve a maximum of two five-year terms in office.
