All The More Reason


Sarkozy contre Royal

These figures are preliminary. Sarkozy and Royal will go against each other in the second round of the French elections in two weeks time. The first figures state that Sarkozy has received 29 percent of the votes and Royal 25 percent. In other words, the right will go against the left in the second round. The centrist candidate, François Bayrou, received roughly 18 percent of the votes and so it will be interesting to see if he urges his voters to vote one way or another. The National Front candidate Jean–Marie Le Pen, who went to the second round in 2002, finished fourth with 11 percent.
