Sarkozy Has Work Cut Out for Him

The French took a step in the right direction yesterday by electing Nicolas Sarkozy as their next president. Beating out Socialist Segolene Royal by a margin of 53.06% to 46.94% (with about 84% voter turnout), Sarkozy plans to free up labor markets, do away with France's 35-hour week law (he believes anyone who wants to work more should be allowed to), and eyes tougher immigration and criminal measures.

Now he has to hope that parliamentary elections, which take place in June, keep his conservative UMP party in control, otherwise his planned reforms will go pffft.

I razz France a lot, but I really do hope that the country manages to rise up from the socialist muck it's gotten itself into. Keeping fingers crossed!
