France: Hollande still down in polls, fresh concern

22 May, 11:07

    (ANSAmed) - PARIS, MAY 22 - There is growing concern for French President Francois Hollande and his Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault as the president's approval rating in surveys is continuing to decline even after a lengthy press conference last week to mark the beginning of his second year in office and his renewed effort to give a positive message to the public opinion.

    According to a survey by LH2 for the weekly Le Nouvel Observateur, Hollande registered a negative record since he became president losing yet another percentage point along with his premier. The poll showed that only 31% now gave a positive opinion of the head of state - who had already lost four points in April with 32% of those polled supporting him - while Ayrault went from 31% to 30% of support.

    The polling institute however noted that Hollande's press conference had a positive impact as before the event - which was held at the Elysee and broadcast live on television - only 29% percent of those polled expressed trust in the president's agenda. (ANSAmed)
