APTOPIX France Presidential Election

A wall screen shows the televised debate between Socialist Party candidate for the presidential election Francois Hollande and current President and conservative rival for re-election, Nicolas Sarkozy, at the TF1 television studio, in Boulogne-Billancourt, outside Paris, Wednesday, May 2, 2012. The prime-time debate between conservative incumbent Sarkozy and his leftist challenger Hollande is billed in newspaper headlines Wednesday as "The Last Duel" and "The Final Confrontation," providing a sense of suspense in a campaign that, if polls are right, has lacked it from the beginning.
