France's Fillon cancels Friday campaign event after Paris shooting

  • Paris shooting casts shadow over final day of election campaign

Although many of these parties have existed for decades, they have been emboldened by Brexit and the election of U.S. President Donald Trump.

If elected president, Le Pen has promised several reforms in her first two months in office including deporting foreigners who are being monitored by intelligence services, denying free health care to illegal immigrants and revoking French nationality to those convicted of having ties to jihadism.

But the gap separating him from the other top three contenders - Marine Le Pen on the far-right, conservative Francois Fillon and far-leftist Jean-Luc Melenchon - has narrowed. With eurospectics Le Pen and Melenchon in the race, the outcome could have a bearing on France's place in Europe.

Traders said an upbeat flash purchasing manager survey from France, added to polls showing centrist Emmanuel Macron still in pole position ahead of Sunday's voting had again been enough to settle nerves after a dip late on Thursday.

Pollsters forecast the most likely outcome of the first round is that Macron will go head-to-head against Le Pen in the May 7 second round.

A Harris Interactive poll on Thursday showed Macron and Le Pen still in front, with the gap a bit wider than before. Speaking Friday on RTL radio, Macron said: "What our attackers want is death, symbolism, to sow panic (and) to disturb a democratic process, which is the presidential election".

Melenchon says "the Europe of our dreams is dead".

Melenchon said he wants to have a dialogue with Germany about renegotiating European Union treaties and creating new rules for the bloc for when Britain leaves. Far-right candidate Marine Le Pen calls for closure of all Islamist mosques. On the home front he wants to reduce the working week to 32 hours, cap executive pay at no more than 20 times the minimum wage, ban leveraged buyouts, break up French banks and pull France out of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

"There are a majority of people who can't stand that old politics", she said.

The "totalitarian" European Union has also always been one of Le Pen's pet hates and constant target for her virulent nationalist discourse.

Macron meanwhile took advantage of Monday's thwarted "imminent" attack in France to portray himself as the only candidate who can "guarantee" the security of the French people.

Macron's relative lack of government experience made some voters hesitant about putting him in charge of France's nuclear arsenal, its permanent seat at the U.N. Security Council, its fight against Islamic extremism and its role as a key player in global crises.

It claimed, for instance, in five articles in February and March that French broadcaster BFMTV had given more airtime to Macron, whom it dubbed the mainstream media's "darling", than to rivals, even though the French media regulator, the CSA, said this was not true. "There's North Korea, Turkey, the thwarted (terror) attack - all things that could tip the vote".

Fillon was the early polls leader before his campaign was engulfed by a scandal over some €500,000 ($536,000) in alleged payments from the state's coffer to his wife and children for non-existent jobs, The allegations, which are denied by Fillon, pulled the rug from beneath his self-styled role as the "Mr Clean" who would target graft amongst French politicians.

It said their users were much more active, at nearly 5 tweets per follower in a sample period compared to 1.5 tweets per follower of other media, and had a "strong political bias" that was broadly pro-Russia and anti-Macron. Voting starts in overseas territories as a blackout on campaigning begins. Also voter vox pops throughout the day.

Replied Macron, "I will do my best, believe me". "I'll hesitate to the end".
