Centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron and far-right rival Marine Le Pen will hold a TV debate on May 3, four days before the run-off vote in France’s presidential election, aides to Macron said on Monday.

The debate will be broadcast nationwide on two TV channels, a source said.

Macron first sought a debate with Le Pen in February “which she refused. Now we are going to have one,” the source added.
