Writing in the Corriere della Sera newspaper, the columnist Sergio Romano wrote that in “the European Union there now exists an opposition formed by a broad array of movements that are too diverse to march together, but numerous enough to make life difficult for those whose will have to govern their countries in the near future.”
In Dublin, Deputy Prime Minister Eamon Gilmore, who is also the leader of the Labour Party, endorsed Mr. Hollande’s call for a new fiscal order. “Put simply, you can’t have economic growth unless you also have stability, but neither can you have stability without growth. It is clear that, with the election of Mr. Hollande, there is a growing number of allies in Europe who share this view.”
Further afield, China said it was “ready to work” with the new French administration, news reports said. But in Russia, violent street protests and the inauguration of Vladimir V. Putin for a third term as president on Monday eclipsed news of the French election. If anything, Mr. Sarkozy’s acknowledgment of defeat contrasted with Mr. Putin’s extraordinary grip on power in the Kremlin.
“A lot of people in our government believe real democracy doesn’t exist,” Mikhail G. Delyagin, director of the Institute of Globalization Studies, a research concern in Moscow, said in an interview Monday. “They don’t mind that everything is democratic in France but not at home.”
Mr. Sarkozy, he said, “admitted his defeat, congratulated the winner and behaved as a grown-up.” It was a model for Russia, Mr. Delyagin said.
Mr. Putin, meanwhile, congratulated Mr. Hollande in a message reported by Interfax.
“The citizens of France have entrusted you with being the leader of the country in what is quite a difficult and a very important period, when not just Europe but the entire world community face the urgent task of overcoming the effects of the financial and economic crisis and building new models for cooperation,” Mr. Putin said.
Although most of the Arab world was too busy with its own unrest to notice Mr. Sarkozy’s defeat, it was big news in Libya, where Mr. Sarkozy’s leading role in the NATO intervention has made him a hero of the revolution that overthrew Col. Muammar el Qaddafi.
Mr. Sarkozy was celebrated across the country a few weeks ago on a national holiday to mark the anniversary of the day that French military planes swooped down to stop a column of Qaddafi tanks from marching into the rebel stronghold of Benghazi, where many of the country’s current interim leaders had huddled together in fear of an impending massacre. Grateful revolutionaries have spray-painted “Sarkozy” in rainbow colors on the walls of cities around the country, and on Sunday night many Libyan Web pages noted his loss with a salute: “Merci, Sarkozy.”
Opponents of the Libyan revolution, meanwhile, reveled in the defeat. In recent weeks, former officials of the Qaddafi government have done everything they could to bring down the French president, including leaking reports that the Qaddafi government supported Mr. Sarkozy’s first election campaign or that, during the Qaddafi years, Mr. Sarkozy sought to sell Libya fighter jets and nuclear power. One former adviser to Colonel Qaddafi provided The New York Times with what appeared to be a transcript of a congratulatory phone call the Libyan leader made to the Mr. Sarkozy when he took office.
“I have kept a wonderful memory of the kind of analysis I have heard from you,” Mr. Sarkozy tells Colonel Qaddafi in the transcript, “and you really do deserve this title, the Leader.”
