Polling stations opened across mainland France on Sunday for a second-round parliamentary vote that is expected to be won by far-right leader Marine Le Pen's National Rally (RN).

While the anti-immigration, Eurosceptic party may not win an outright majority, a hung parliament would leave a divided France in political limbo and weaken its international standing. 

Voting began at 8:00am (0600 GMT) and was to continue to 6:00pm, or 8:00pm in major cities, when voting estimates will be released.
