President Emmanuel Macron has begun his campaign ahead of the presidential runoff election on April 24.
He wants to become the first French president to be re-elected in the last 20 years.
He won the most votes in the first round on Sunday, but his far-right challenger Marine Le Pen was not far behind, and is determined to start her own presidency by winning the runoff.
Can the far right win? And what would that mean for France?
