Centrist Emmanuel Macron and far-right leader Marine Le Pen held onto their lead as the frontrunners to narrowly beat other candidates in the first round of the presidential election, a Cevipof poll for Le Monde newspaper showed on Wednesday.

In a BFM television interview Wednesday she repeated that she would slash immigration, make it harder to get French nationality and crack down on suspected Islamists.

As the election date nears, the outcome has become less predictable and recent polls have shown that the race is tight between centrist Emmanuel Macron and far-right Marine Le Pen.

PARIS French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron spoke with former USA president Barack Obama on the phone on Thursday, in an apparent sign of support just three days before the first round of an uncertain presidential election.

Le Pen, who, according to polls conducted in the past week is likely to move onto the second round, has argued that France must quit the euro, and has advocated a referendum on European Union membership, similar to the one that led to Brexit a year ago.

The top two will advance to a run-off vote on May 7.

Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins said in a news conference that weapons, explosives, videos and jidhadist propaganda materials had been found in the flat rented by French nationals Clement Baur, 23, and Mahiedine Merabet, 30, since 1 April.

The leftist leader recently spoke in Marseille, where he described his candidacy as a third option for voters who are dissatisfied with extreme right-wing politics and supporters of free market economics.

If Le Pen takes 22%-23% in the first round, she'll have done better than ever before.

"You'll see, we'll soon stuff your oligarchic rag in the cupboard", shot back Florian Philippot, the FN vice-president. The Bloomberg Composite of first-round polls showed Macron nearly two points ahead, on 24.2 percent. Hamon is polling a distant fifth place ahead of Sunday's first-round election and has little chan.
