Reaction to the French Election Result


The final count gave Mr. Sarkozy 53.06%, compared with 46.94% for socialist Segolene Royal, with turnout at 85%.

Sittingbull at France’s ExtremeCentre blog, posted these two photos titled “A Tolerably Amusing Contrast.”

Sarkozy supporters exult and celebrate on the Place de la Concorde.

At Rue de Solférino, the mood of Ségolène Royal’s supporters is much more sombre.

Other Royale supporters expressed their disappointment more vigorously. Rioting and car burnings took place in Paris and Lyons.
