Front National- Wins an army of Regional Councillors with 45% of the vote
Front National has now an army of regional councillors, tripling its previous number around the country and turning it into an opposition force to be reckoned with, says The Daily Telegraph, adding that this not only stands for Marine Le Pen in good stead for the presidential elections of 2017 but changes the entire French political landscape.
The big loser in this election was Socialist President François Hollande that has control of 21 out 22 regions and now has five out of 13. In an effort to counter Front National, the Socialists of François Hollande condemned themselves to third place.
