DescriptionFrançois Hollande has won France’s presidential election, giving the country its first Socialist president in almost two decades, exit polls showed Sunday.

According to Ipsos polling institute, the left-wing candidate took 51.9% of the vote to incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy’s 48.1%.

Hollande triumphed in the task of returning the Socialists to power five years after his then-partner Segolene Royal, the party’s nominee in 2007, lost to Sarkozy.
