Politics France

Exit polls from the French presidential elections show Socialist candidate Francois Hollande with 28.4% of the vote and President Nicolas Sarkozy with 25.5%, French officials announced Sunday.

A presidential candidate must receive more than 50% of the vote to win office. If no one claims a majority in the first round of voting, the top two vote-getters advance to a second round of voting. The runoff would take place May 6.

In addition to Sarkozy and Hollande, candidates include Jean-Luc Melenchon on the extreme left with 11.7%, Marine Le Pen on the extreme right with 20%, and centrist Francois Bayrou with 8.5%. Ref. CNN

French President Nicolas Sarkozy has conceded the presidential election to Socialist challenger Francois Hollande.

Hollande is set to become the nation's first left-wing president since Francois Mitterrand left office in 1995.

With the loss, Sarkozy will become the latest -- and most significant -- of at least half a dozen European leaders swept from office during the eurozone economic crisis, including the Greek and Italian prime ministers.

Concerns over the economy, unemployment and immigration have been at the forefront of the French election. France is a key player in plans to lead the eurozone out of its debt crisis, making the election vital to the region. Ref. CNN
