Sarkozy WINS!!!...AGAIN!


Since I forgot to mark Sarkozy’s UMP Party's Parliamentary win last Sunday, I do so now.

Sarkozy's party and its allies won 346 of the 577, or just about 60% of the seats in the National Assembly, which though fewer than the 359 seats the UMP used to have, is still, more than enough to move their agenda forward without encumbrances.

Moreover, it was the first time in nearly three decades that voters returned an outgoing parliamentary majority to power.

"France needs a kick in the derriere," said businessman Emmanuel Dochie de la Quintane, 35, on his way to vote for a Sarkozy candidate in Paris.

Prime Minister Francois Fillon said the right would waste no time in using its majority to "resolutely modernize" France, approving reforms on labor, employment, consumer spending, law and order, universities, immigration and reducing the disruptiveness of strikes.

"We don't want to wait any longer to launch the renovation that the French are calling for," he said. "We will reform, we will renovate, we will experiment with new ideas. ... We will get rid of the defeatism that is suffocating the republic."

Sarkozy's government has already scheduled an extraordinary session of the new .parliament starting June 26.

Vive Le Sarkozy administratione!
