Default Hollande Won The Election

A new story entry has been added:

Hollande Won The Election

Quote:
You can’t believe this, François Hollande won the French presidential election on Sunday, capturing more than 51 percent of the vote to defeat incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy (who is the president since 2007, only captured 48.1 percent) and become France's new president. French television declared the election for Hollande immediately after the polls closed Sunday. Moments later, Sarkozy told his supporters that he called Holland to congratulate him, and to concede victory.


They both 57 years old. Hollande, the socialist challenger, very narrowly edged Sarkozy, in a preliminary election two weeks ago, but since he did not win with an absolute majority, France law required a runoff between the top two candidates.
