French left set to win parliament vote: polls
ARIS | Thu May 10, 2012 10:57pm EDT

(Reuters) - The French left will trounce the conservative UMP party of outgoing President Nicolas Sarkozy in parliamentary elections next month after Francois Hollande won a presidential runoff vote at the weekend, two polls indicated on Friday.

Hollande's Socialists and other left-wing partner parties could together win 45-46 percent of the vote in the June 10 first round of the election, compared with about one-third for the UMP.

The left aims to build on its momentum after voters swept Hollande to victory on Sunday, bringing the Socialists back to government in Paris after a decade in opposition.

1. I'm up for that
I'm hoping the Greeks go back to the polls next month and try again
Most polls show the Real Left Party getting 138 seats and they'd need just 13 more to rule
