When are the French election results out on Sunday?

Investors are nervously counting down to the first round of the French presidential election on Sunday, which is feared to rattle the foundations of the European Union.

Polls are still nail-bitingly tight, so the result is far from as clear-cut as it has looked in previous elections.

The first exit polls from French media are published when the last polling stations close at 8 p.m. Paris time, or 2 p.m. Eastern Time, and should give a fairly accurate picture of which two candidates have won the most support. Those two will compete in a runoff vote on Sunday, May 7 and the winner will become France’s next president.
