9:02 pm
of the national front and such as france will by rule who are they going to choose for the second route the french will certainly be choosing between a man or lawyer flames that he will bring back to what would he do the country also want to go head to head with german chancellor angela merkel to challenge a fiscal pact that he says is bad for us on the other hand you have a man a subtlety with flames was that he is the only one who could prevent france from going down the path of these italy spain and all the trouble to resolve a sense have gone down but there is a group of people who believe that they don't really have a choice when it comes to the program to do that and therefore the personality of these two men has become just as important as the proposals they put for boils down to which man is more presidential to take on that's all better now for the beginning of the campaign there has a big box of things yes of the people saying that they don't really see any of the candidates was up to there with a real solution that could bring france out of the quagmire that it's never the.

9:04 pm
a dramatic personality and i think because he thinks that france needs a change from the slightly energetic style of leadership of nicolas sarkozy but i think one has to say that they're of the question marks but far smaller and he's never been a minister of any sort i mean this is i would say probably almost unique you know a major western country that someone's got this far in the electoral process and they've never served in any sort of you not like office at a national level so they're kind of course there is the other faction but at least half of the country have a big question mark about whether they really want a socialist government because they always suspect fairly or unfairly the socialists will tax and spend and maybe that's not appropriate for the present circumstances. as france hold its collective breath wondering who the country's future president will be russia's preparing for the know gratian of its next lead him to meet you maybe it ever will hand over to vladimir putin at a ceremony in the make never been told of the kremlin it's all happening on monday and we'll be covering it live in from seven thirty g.m.t.
