Who is François Hollande?

  • Thomas CHEVANDIER. National Secretary, Socialist Party Youth Movement;
  • Craig COPETAS. Journalist;
  • Mathieu DOIRET. Political analyst, IPSOS polling institute;
  • John GAFFNEY. Professor of Politics, Co-Director, Aston Centre for Europe, Aston University. Author of "Political leadership in France: from Charles de Gaulle to Nicolas Sarkozy" (from Rennes, France).
