French Elections 2012

With only two weeks left before the final voting starts on 6th May 2012 for the election of new french president, the current president Nicholas Sarkozy who is running for the second time for this post is behind in the race as more number of people seem to like Françcois Hollande.

Are you scratching your head ? What does elections, voting, president mean ?

Hmmm, Let us try to understand. Every country needs a government which has many policy makers which in turn helps in the running of the country. The head of this government is called the “President”.

You must have seen something similar in your school, whenever a class leader has to be chosen the teacher selects some names of students. All your classmates write a name of the kid they like on a tiny sheet of paper. The sheets are collected and counted,whoever gets the most, is selected as the class leader.

So the “President”  is like a class leader, the process of choosing is “Elections” and the tiny sheets with names on them are like “Votes”.

Let us wait and see who becomes the next president of France :)
