Paris: French shoppers would be paying for their baguettes in francs within a year if far-right candidate Marine Le Pen wins the presidential election next weekend, her National Front (FN) party's deputy leader said Monday.

Supporters of both candidates took to the streets, airwaves and social media to weigh on an election closely watched by financial markets and France's neighbors as a test of the global populist wave.

The poll also predicts an abstention rate of 29 percent, and May Day demonstrations against both candidates reflect the disillusionment many voters feel when faced with a choice between Macron and Le Pen. At a rally in Paris Macron blasted Le Pen's vision for France as the "project of protectionism, isolationism, (and) nationalism". "France", Jean-Marie Le Pen said.

Le Pen hit back that the unions "are not defending workers' interests, they are looking after their own interests".

Jean-Marie Le Pen is holding the Joan of Arc event again, a march his daughter wants nothing to do with.

Addressing voters from the right and the left who chose other candidates in the election's first round, he said he is fighting to defeat Le Pen in Sunday's runoff "so that you can freely, democratically express your disagreement tomorrow".

Over the weekend, Ms Le Pen was endorsed by Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, a conservative candidate who lost in the first round of voting.

Macron is leading in the polls by 20 percentage points - victory seems likely.

Macron also warned against the "trap" of division, saying Le Pen's party is trying to "make us believe one can protect the French people by designating Muslim French people as the enemy". "He is called Emmanuel Macron".

Some factions are going against their leadership to call for members to vote "neither (for Ms Le Pen) nor (for Mr Macron)" - seen by many leftists as an enemy of the worker.

"I won't forget anything and I'll fight until the very last second, not only against her programme, but against her idea of democracy and what constitutes the French Republic".

Mr Macron, who has pulled support from the right and the left, said candidates will have to quit their parties to run in his movement.

She has also intensified her campaign to convince working-class left-wingers to rally to her cause, or at least abstain.

Mr Macron joined the man's son and anti-National Front protesters at an annual commemoration near the Louvre Museum.

Centrist Mr Macron evoked the memory of a May Day 22 years ago as he tried to paint his Eurosceptic, anti-immigration opponent as an extremist.

Mr Macron hugged Mr Bourram's son Said on the bridge ahead of the rally and insisted Ms Le Pen has failed in her efforts to distance herself from the legacy her father gave the party.
