Hollande elected French president
"The French can be confident," she said on France-2 television. "We will need everyone to help the country recover." Ms Royal faced off against Sarkozy in the 2007 election.

The CSA, TNS-Sofres and Ipsos polling agencies predicted that Mr Hollande will win with 51.8% to 53%, compared with 47% to 48.2% for Mr Sarkozy. They made projections based on the vote count at select voting stations around the country.
