Francois Hollande wins, and Sarkozy concedes defeat. While the French election seems remote to Latin American issues, the fact that a conservative’s economic austerity plans, the subsequent worsening of the economy, and the electorate ultimately removing said conservative from office in favor of a more leftist president should sound more than a little familiar to anybody who has paid attention to Latin American politics in the last twelve years. [Plus, as a French Department, French Guiana also now has a new president, so it’s not so remote to South America after all.]
