Hollande's days in the Elysée are numbered

The departmental elections in France have not only strengthened the right wing but also underscored the likelihood of a quick end to François Hollande's presidency, the liberal business paper Hospodářské noviny believes: "The left-wing government under President Hollande must face the fact that it has lost the elections. The defeat of the most unpopular president in the history of the country can also be attributed to the low voter turnout. The French seem to feel as much resignation about politics as we do here in the Czech Republic. Most of the blame goes to the economic crisis, which despite all his efforts President Hollande has not been able to find a solution to. Hollande hasn't given up the fight, but his days in the Elysée Palace are numbered. The left simply cannot present such an unpopular man as presidential candidate again. Au revoir, monsieur le président!"
