French President François Hollande’s party gained a majority in a parliamentary election Sunday, giving President Fracois Hollande further ability to stabilize his country and the euro zone. Most voters and most politicians in France seemed to favor the idea of a solid Socialist bloc, reasoning that a healthy majority would allow Hollande’s party to govern without pandering to the extremes. "This new, solid, and large majority will allow us now to pass laws for change, and gives us great responsibilities in France and in Europe," Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said. The party is predicted to have between 308 and 320 seats in the 577-seat National Assembly.
