FRENCH PAPERS – Mon. 20.03.16: For the French press, campaign season officially begins with tonight’s first televised debate between the five leading presidential candidates. Papers say there is a lot to play for. This comes as a new poll shows Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron would tie in the first round with 26% each, but left-wing candidates Benoit Hamon and Jean-Luc Mélenchon are hoping to catch up with momentum from their weekend rallies.
