    Background: France is electing a new President today (Sunday). Despite bleak weather, early polling was reported heavy.

    Separate ballot papers are marked for each candidate, the voter taking the one of his or her choice.

    They have a choice of six candidates. Their decision is whether to return General de Gaulle to power or put a new man in the Elysee Palace.

    The winner must get an absolute majority of 50 per cent of the votes or more. Should the most favoured candidate get less, a run-off between the two leading contenders will be held on December 19.
