AP reports that Socialist Francois Hollande is likely to be the favorite among Muslims since his run-off opponent, conservative President Nicolas Sarkozy, spoke out against Muslim practices in his campaign. In the initial election round, right-wing candidate Marine Le Pen who received 18% of the vote had particularly attacked Muslims, and Sarkozy in the run-off is seeking votes of Le Pen backers.
