Election fever

Is Sarkozy headed for the Élysée Palace exit? Will Ken again lord it over London (over 30 years after he was first elected leader of the Greater London Council)? Is the far right Gold Dawn party set to win its first seats in Greece’s first elections since the country’s bail-out? Will the Lib Dems or the Tories bear the brunt of voters’ discontent with the coalition in national local elections? At the start of a week to be dominated by polls and ballot boxes, these are interesting times.

France’s visceral rejection on Sarkozy

Dominique Moisi, Co-Founder and Senior Advisor at the Institut Français des Relations
Internationales said yesterday at Chatham House that Francois Hollande will win the French Presidential Elections. The French people’s rejection of Sarkozy is not about rational objections with his policies. Rather, it is a gut reaction against his failure to behave as a respectable political figurehead who embodied the sanctity of the state.

John Peet, Europe Editor of The Economist, reprised his argument from the paper’s feature a short while ago that France was a country in denial when it came to the Eurozone crisis. Dominique Moisi charmingly – but firmly – disagreed!
