French presidential elections 2007

Conservative leader Nicolas Sarkozy won a clear victory over his Socialist opponent, Ségolène Royal, in a 6 May run-off which saw French voters turn out in exceptionally high numbers. The first round was marked by the defeat of the far-right of Jean-Marie Le Pen and the emergence of the centrist François Bayrou, whose supporters were seen as holding the key to the final round.
