Today there are many of us spending our time and energy to find out the result of the first tour of the French presidential elections, in advance and before the more official announcements at 20 hours tonight. There will be several blogs giving the result in advance (although forbidden) - not mine. You can of course also check on foreigns sites, like Belgian and Swiss newspapers ( http://www.lesoir.be/dossiers/presidentielles/infographie.shtml, http://www.tdg.ch/) which will - and have the right - to publish the results, probably around 18 hours. Internet may explode this afternoon and evening, so I thought I should put something on my blog not too late.
As an immigrant I have no right to vote for "my" candidate. Anyhow, for whom would I vote? (... and I am of course a neutral Swede.) There are 12 candidates and two have to be chosen for the second tour in two weeks. Many of the voters will decide in the last minute. It's not easy to find the "perfect" candidate.
Sur le site de Canal+ (http://votezplus.canalplus.fr/) on peut répondre à 10 questions et on obtient un image de "son" candidat. J'ai essayé. Voilà ce que ça donne. Un mélange de Bayrou, Royal et Besancenot. Pas toute à fait representaif de mes pensées - qui restent sécrètes.
But it's thrilling. "Everybody" will be in front of their TV tonight and the pizza, hamburger and sushi deliveries will beat all records.
