    French centrist Francois Bayrou rejected overtures from presidential rivals Nicolas Sarkozy and Segolene Royal on Wednesday, saying he would not advise supporters who to vote for in the May 6 election.

Ségolène Royal (left) and Nicolas Sarkozy (right) are both eyeing at Bayou’s 6.7 million voters with a great interest, but obviously, it’s more crucial for one of them.

    In just a few hours, France will hold its breath. No more public appearances for the candidates for president, no more polls, no more politics in the media.
