The French Presidential elections will take place tomorrow. It will be interesting to see if the previsions will be true and the two leading contenders will make it for the second round or if a surprise will happen. Besides this fight to reach the second round, observers will also look closely at the results of the other candidates, as this will give valuable insights into the French opinions, even the lesser known parties will be looking forward to reaching the 5% mark to get some of their campaign expenses refunded. Abstention will probably be high as many people do not feel represented by any of the candidates. For people living abroad, the voting process can be a hassle as it involves sometimes a long travel to the city where voting is possible.
