The French chose a new President.
The choice during the French Presidential elections opposed Nicolas Sarkozy (UMP:Right wing) to François Hollande (Socialists:left wing).
Considering how unpopular Sarkozy was, according to polls, the final vote of 51.6% for Hollande to 48.4% for Sarkozy which was close.
Francois Hollande was elected France’s first Socialist president in nearly two decades, promising change in Europe after dealing a humiliating defeat to incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy.
The positive emotion was the link among the French population who welcomed the new president in his office today in Paris.
According to the White House spokesman Jay Carney, President Barack Obama invited Hollande for talks before the G8 summit.
As well as discussing Europe’s economy, Obama is also likely to raise Hollande’s pledge to pledge to start bringing 3,300 French soldiers home this year, ending his country’s combat role two years earlier than NATO.
2017 seems to be the final meeting for French people and their new President in order to analyze the results of Mr. Hollande’s domestic and international policies.
