Intense campaigning had left little doubt over Zemmour's intention to stand in the 2022 elections and some polls had suggested he could make it to a second round against President Emmanuel Macron.

But tensions have been mounting in the Zemmour camp, as the most recent polls suggested the support of the far-right commentator was beginning to wane in favour of the traditional standard-bearer on the far-right, Marine Le Pen.

On Saturday, Zemmour gave the finger to a passer-by while in the southern city of Marseille -- in response to the passer-by giving him the same gesture -- in an exchange captured by an AFP photographer.

Zemmour, 63, won notoriety as a commentator for his strident attacks on Islam and immigration.

He is due to hold his first official campaign meeting on Sunday morning in Paris -- anti-fascists and unions have already pledged to hold a "silence Zemmour" protest at 1 pm (noon GMT) in the French capital.

There had been speculation that his candidacy could be announced in the coming days before Zemmour gives a major address in Paris on December 5.

Macron has yet to declare his candidacy, but is widely expected to do so early next year.

The traditional right-wing The Republicans are due to announce their candidate at a congress on December 4.
