French election: Who are the presidential frontrunners?

As the 12 French presidential candidates edge closer to the first round of voting set to be held on Sunday, a number of them have pulled ahead of their counterparts.
In order to qualify for running, candidates secured the 500 endorsements from the 42,000 elected French officials needed to enter the race.
While incumbent President Emmanuel Macron is the favourite to win, he faces a repeat of the 2017 election when far-right candidate Marine Le Pen was presented as his biggest contender.
