Nicolas Sarkozy (liberal) : 31,11% Ségolène Royal (socialist) : 25,83% François Bayrou (center - christian-democrate) : 18,55% Jean-Marie Le Pen (extrem-right) : 10,51% Olivier Besancenot (revolutionnary communist): 4,11% Philippe De Villiers (extrem right) : 2,24% Marie-George Buffet (communist) : 1,94% Dominique Voynet (ecologist) : 1,57% Arlette Laguiller (extrem left): 1,34% José Bové (extrem left): 1,32% Frédéric Nihous (rurality and hunters party) : 1,15% Gérard Schivardi (extrem left, break with EU) : 0,34% Sarkozy leads, good news. Le Pen has a bad result, good news. The extrem left (communists) won't have money from State (only when the list has at least 5%). I hope Sarkozy will win. And other good news : participation to the election : 84, 6 % of the french voters (about 44 millions of voters were call to the vote). The biggest participation of the Vth Republic (since 1958). And the non-valid and white votes : 1,44% (weak).
