Basilique Saint Sernin

Saint Sernin

The Basilique Saint Sernin in the City of Toulouse. We had a day out in Toulouse on Sunday which was about the only day the sun shone in a while. The south of France is battling for some of the nice weather that has been in abundance in the northern parts of Europe.

Sunday evening also saw the results of the Election of the new President Elect Sarkozy who will take office on the 16th of May.

The reason I am told that they are able to announce the results of who will be President as soon as the voting booths are closed at 20h 00 is because of the Polls carried out as people leave the voting stations. The are accurate to within a few percentage points!

Presidential Election

Presidential Election

Sunday the 6th of May will see the final in the Presidential run off between Ségolène Royal and Nicolas Sarkosy.

As I am not a French citizen I am not eligible to vote, but my French wife will be able to do so. The two candidates abridged manifestos arrived by post today and after last nights televised marathon debate between the two candidates I wonder who will be France's next President?

We should know at 20h.00. Sunday.
