The Presidential and Legislative Elections of April, May and June 2012
The presidential and legislative elections that took place during April, May and June 2012 led to the expression of a 'normal vote'.
Normal, in the sense that one of the presidential candidates, François Hollande, compared this political situation with the ‘abnormal’ or ‘non-standard’ behaviour of his successive challengers, Dominique Strauss-Kahn and Nicolas Sarkozy. Normal, finally, because 2012’s sanction vote dealt a major blow to both the outgoing president and his legislators, much like in other European countries also experiencing the crisis.
Will such political ‘normality’ be tenable over the course of a presidential term? Would a ‘normal presidency’ grow inopportune when its authority and majority rule ultimately face major difficulties and an unusual set of circumstances?
