Extreme-right leader Jean-Marie Le Pen predicted an "enormous surprise" in the first round of France's two-round presidential election in April. Le Pen, who shocked France and Europe by coming in second place behind incumbent President Jacques Chirac in the last election in 2002, said support for his presidential campaign was growing day by day.
