12:15, Monday, 01 May, 2017
The front-runner in the French presidential election has told the BBC that the EU must reform or face the prospect of "Frexit". Pro-EU centrist Emmanuel Macron made the comments as he and his far-right rival Marine Le Pen entered the last week of campaigning. French voters go to the polls on Sunday to decide between the pair. Ms Le Pen has capitalised on anti-EU feeling, and has promised a referendum on France's membership. She won support in rural and former industrial areas by promising to retake control of France's borders from the EU and slash immigration.The polling average line looks at the five most recent national polls and takes the median value, ie, the value between the two figures that are higher and two figures that are lower.
