The first official results of the second round of the French presidential election will be provided by the country's Interior Ministry at 8 p.m. local time.
The polling stations opened in France at 8 a.m. local time on Sunday.
In the second round of the vote, two candidates face each other: independent Emmanuel Macron, the leader of "En Marche!" movement, who got 24 percent of the votes in the first round, and right-wing Marine Le Pen, who came second with 21 percent of the votes.
The turnout at the election is rather low, amounting only to 28.54 percent at noon, according to the French Interior Ministry. The reason behind such a turnout is dissatisfaction of the French citizens with candidates for the presidency.
Following the first round of election on April 23, mass demonstrations took place across France under motto "Ni Macron, Ni Le Pen," urging to abstain from voting.
