    also am happy that Melanchon (and wished that NPA had backed Melanchon for the election for tactical reasons) threw his votes to Hollande, it was essential to defeat Sarkozy. I doubt that the either the left or centre-left will be complacent, the vote was close. Given the results, it also appears that perhaps FN voters threw their votes to Sarkozy and didn't follow Le Pen's suggestion; voting percentages were very high. 86% is incredible; so this is step number 2, next step is the continuation for a good result in the general assembly. Fingers crossed and opening a good bottle of wine!
