Britain and France have called for EU
reforms, as leaders arrive for a summit in
Brussels after elections which gave a boost
to Eurosceptic parties.
President Francois Hollande asked Europe
to "pay attention" to the events in France,
where his Socialist party lost to the far-right
Cameron, whose Conservatives lost to the
UK Independence Party (UKIP), said Brussels
was "too big, too bossy".
Populist and far-right parties across the EU
also saw a surge in support.
The votes have strengthened the anti-EU
position in the European Parliament, but pro-
European parties still won most votes over-
all.Yesterday s informal summit is the first
opportunity for leaders of all 28 member states
to discuss the way forward after last week s
Many of those there will have faced a tough
few days at home, correspondents say.
Hollande has described his domestic results
The National Front---which Germany s
finance minister, the pro-EU Wolfgang Schaeu-
ble, described as "fascist"---stormed to victory
with a preliminary 25 per cent of the vote,
pushing Hollande s Socialists into third place.
National Front President Marine Le Pen
said she would use her electoral mandate to
"defend France" and fight "crazy measures
like votes for immigrants".
"Yes, there is a problem," Hollande said on
arriving in Brussels. "But it s not only a problem
for France and to which France must find an
answer... It s also a problem for Europe."
Europe has not "voted against the EU". The
vast majority of those who bothered to cast
a ballot did so for parties that are pro-EU.
Cameron said the EU "cannot just shrug
off these results and carry on as before".
UKIP took 27 per cent of the vote in the
UK, the first time in a century that a party
other than the Conservatives or Labour has
won a UK election.
Despite the unprecedented Eurosceptic gains
across the Union, the pro-EU bloc has retained
a comfortable majority in the parliament.
CAIRO---"Where are the people?" one talk show
host on a military station shouted as Egypt yes-
terday extended its presidential election to a third
day in an apparent drive to raise voter turnout and
avoid an embarrassingly meager show of support
for former army chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.
Throughout the day, officials and supporters of
el-Sissi, the expected winner, exhorted voters to go
to the polls.
Scenes of empty polling stations drove el-Sissi
supporters on the country s TV stations into a lather,
and they scolded Egyptians for not turning out.
Opponents said the turnout showed the depth of
discontent with el-Sissi, not just among his Islamist
foes but among a broader section of the public that
says he has no solutions for the country s woes and
fears he will return Egypt to the autocratic ways of
Hosni Mubarak, overthrown in 2011 after 29 years
There has never been any doubt that the 59-year-
old el-Sissi would win over his sole opponent, leftist
politician Hamdeen Sabahi.
But he and his backers have sought a big victory
to send a message to the West---as well as to his
domestic opponents---that his ouster last summer
of Egypt s first freely elected president, Mohammed
Morsi, was not a coup but a popular revolution.
Millions took to the streets in protests against Morsi
before el-Sissi removed him. (AP)
