Abstract: 

The President of the Republic in France shall be elected for five years by direct universal suffrage. Nobody may be elected more than two successive terms. The President shall be elected by an absolute majority of the votes cast. Balloting shall be begun by a writ of election issued by the Government. The election of the new President shall be held not less than twenty days and not more than thirty-five days before the expiry of the term of the President in office. In the case of a vacancy, or where the incapacity of the President is declared permanent by the Constitutional Council, the ballot for the election of the new President shall, except in the event of a finding by the Constitutional Council of force majeure, be held not less than twenty days and not more than thirty-five days after the beginning of the vacancy or the declaration that the incapacity is permanent. The death or incapacitation of each presidential candidate may under some conditions postpone the time of election celeberation and the next presidential election. If, in the seven days preceding the last day for lodging presentations of candidature, any of the persons who, less than thirty days prior to that day, have publicly announced their decision to be a candidate dies or becomes incapacitated, the Constitutional Council may decide to postpone the election. If, before the first ballot, any of the candidates dies or becomes incapacitated, the Constitutional Council shall declare the election postponed. In the event of the death or incapacitation of either of the two candidates in the lead in the first ballot before any withdrawals, the Constitutional Council shall declare that the electoral procedure must be repeated in full. The Constitutional Council shall ensure the proper conduct of the election of the President of the Republic. It shall examine complaints and shall declare the results of the vote.
