The second round of centre-right primaries of the center-right coalition has begun in France. According to many analysts, the candidate, who is going to win today, will have a real chance of winning the presidential election in 2017.

Former president of France Nicolas Sarkozy dropped out in the first round of the presidential race. But he called his supporters to vote for Francois Fillon, who gained the most votes.

Former French PM Francois Fillon is expected to win in the primaries, and to struggle for the presidency with Marine Le Pen.
