A Petition To Cancel The Election Due To Media Bias 

Linda Uzan May 10, 2012

We are democrats. And we all accept the normal interplay of democracy. We love our country, France, and we respect French laws.  But we find injustice unbearable and we cannot accept it.  The difference of treatment in the media between the two candidates, Nicolas Sarkozy and Francois Hollande, in favor of the latter, the abusive and defamatory propaganda until the last day against Nicolas Sarkozy strongly vitiating the balance of votes, and Francois Hollande's media campaign during the last 48 hours before the second round being strictly prohibited according to the electoral code, we, French citizens and voters, do petition the Constitutional Council for cancellation of the presidential election whose first and second rounds took place on April 22 and May 6, 2012. With 46,028,542 voters, a 1,139,272 vote difference -in fact, 569 638, half plus one- is a very small gap. There is a breakdown of republican equality, and a violation of constitutional principles. The case law of the Council of State and of the Constitutional Council are drastic towards candidates to the elections. Thank you. Yours, Linda UZAN, Regional Advisor of Ile-de-France, City Councillor of Sarcelles. Read more...
