Nicolas Sarkozy Elected France President

Reading the coverage of the election 'disturbances' in France, I see that the "youths" have been causing trouble yet again. I am tired of these European "youths" who riot and cause trouble all over. So few of them are even of European decent that I am shocked that the European press continues to claim them as Europeans! If these immigrents don't like the country they have moved to, then send them back to where they were happy! Why coddle immigrants who hate the country they have moved to? I do not understand this kind of reasoning. - Nicolas Sarkozy Elected France President - International News | News of the World | Middle East News | Europe News: "Nicolas Sarkozy, a blunt and uncompromising pro-American conservative, was elected president of France Sunday with a mandate to chart a new course for an economically sluggish nation struggling to incorporate immigrants and their children.

Sarkozy defeated Socialist Segolene Royal by by 53.06 percent to 46.94 percent with 84 percent turnout, according to final results released early Monday. It was a decisive victory for Sarkozy's vision of freer markets and toughness on crime and immigration, over Royal's gentler plan for preserving cherished welfare protections, including a 35-hour work week that Sarkozy called 'absurd.'

'The people of France have chosen change,' Sarkozy told cheering supporters in a victory speech that sketched out a stronger global role for France and renewed partnership with the United States.

There were few reports of unrest, despite fears that the impoverished suburban housing projects, home to Arab and African immigrants and their French-born children, would erupt again at the victory of a man who labeled those responsible for rioting in 2005 as 'scum.' That abrasive style raised doubts over whether Sarkozy, himself the son of a Hungarian refugee, could truly unite the increasingly diverse and polarized nation."
