Hollande in lead, but runoff likely in French poll
Laaska News Apr.22, 2012
Incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy is apparently trailing Socialist challenger Francois Hollande in the first round of France’s presidential election, due to be held on Sunday.
There is a growing view that neither candidate will be able to gain a majority of the votes, forcing a run-off on May 6th.
Polling stations open at 8 AM on Sunday with a total of 10 candidates running.
At issue is the country’s economic policy in the face of the European debt crisis.
Sarkozy, who is seeking his second 5-year term, has been facing an uphill battle due to his austerity policy to cope with the crisis.
Hollande, from the largest opposition Socialist Party, has been in the lead by advocating measures to create jobs.
Hollande says he will push for a review of a new EU treaty for tighter fiscal discipline, insisting elements to promote growth must be added.
The outcome of the presidential race is certain to have a great impact on the EU’s attempt to end the credit crisis.
The polls close at 8 PM and the results are expected to come out by around midnight.
