Le Pen and Macron in second round in French presidential election
Scandal-hit conservative François Fillon and far-left wildcard Jean-Luc Mélenchon have been knocked out of the closely-fought race.
Voter turnout in France's close presidential election is above 69 percent in late afternoon, almost as high as the last presidential vote.
The Interior Ministry announced Sunday that the turnout had reached 69.4 percent, compared to 70.6 percent in the first round of presidential voting in 2012. ■
