France election: Le Pen narrows gap on Macron in tightening race

Far-right candidate Marine Le Pen holds her final rally of the French presidential election campaign on Thursday.
Polls suggest the race is tightening, with Le Pen an increasing threat to President Emmanuel Macron’s chances of re-election. Her campaign has focused doggedly on the cost of living, while Macron prefers to highlight his handling of the war in Ukraine.
French voters will go to the polls at a moment of crisis in Europe. Whether they choose stability and continuity or something different is as unpredictable as the conflict that has overshadowed this election.

Al Jazeera’s Natacha Butler reports from Montataire on the issues driving voters in the final days of the campaign.
