(ANSAmed) - PARIS - A few hours ahead of the election silence imposed on the eve of the first round of the presidential election on Sunday, polls are being furiously unleashed and scenarios imagined in France, with the two favourites - Nicolas Sarkozy and François Hollande - preparing to go head to head.

The Socialist challenger has consolidated his advantage over Sarkozy, according to a poll by BVA, which puts him at 30% of voter intentions, against 26.5% for the outgoing President.

The National Front's Marine Le Pen and the far-left Front de Gauche party's Jean-Luc Melenchon have been left behind on 14%. Projections suggest that Hollande would earn 57% of the vote in the run-off, with Sarkozy on 43%.

The TNS-Sofres institute, meanwhile, says that Sarkozy and Hollande are level on 27%, with the Socialist 10 points ahead of Sarkozy in the run-off (55% against 45%).

A third pollster, IPSOS, gives Hollande a more significant first-round lead (29% against 25.5%), and a 12-point lead in the run-off (56% against 44%). (ANSAmed).
