Round 1 of French parliamentary elections: Sarko’s conservatives win

Fausta’s got updates galore. Austin Bay’s following the results closely, too.

The second – and most important round – will be the final round, which takes place on June 17.

If the conservative wave continues and is successful next week, it will make it all the more easier for Sarko to implement the sweeping reforms he wants to, most regarding the French economy.

Speaking of Sarko, the Politque blog has video of what looks like a slightly tipsy new French president … doing some early celebrating, perhaps?

    It will be interesting to see if Sarkozy leverages the new parliament to go after the tough reforms first, or go after early easy wins. The manufacturing guys at Evolving Excellence have been talking about his potential reforms as well.
