Lake Geneva region French get strong voice in Vielliard

Lake Geneva region, France (Le Temps, Fre) – A supporter of French presidential candidate François Bayrou, Antoine Vielliard, has strong support in the Lake Geneva region and is using it to push for change  as Sunday’s national assembly elections  draw near. The challenge is huge: Haute-Savoie voted overwhelmingly for Nicolas Sarkozy, but the young Vielliard (age 35) believes that if he has Annemasse and St-Julien behind him he has a chance against strong favourite and longtime Savoyard politician Claude Birraux.
