Sarkozy Poised to Return to Power in France Print E-mail

Former Conservative President Nicolas Sarkozy of France appears poised to regain his powers after Conservatives swept into power in the Senate.

The Daily Telegraph of London reports that, "Three years after France's upper house Senate made its first ever swing to the left, the right has clawed back a majority, with the far-right National Front winning seats for the first time."

Marie Le-Pen of the far-Right National Front is quoted as saying that, "It's the first time that we are entering the Senate and in a nice way, with two senators."

According to the Telegraph, "The results were a new setback for beleaguered Socialist President François Hollande. The conservative UMP party of Mr Hollande's predecessor Nicolas Sarkozy and its allies from the centrist UDI won 188 seats according to near-final results in the late evening – 13 seats more than needed for an absolute majority."

Sarkozy lost his President re-election bid when campaigned against President Francois Hollande, a Socialist Party leader.
