French voters want to see Prime Minister Manuel Valls secure the Socialist Party ticket to run for presidential election next year, an opinion poll showed on Friday, hours after President Francois Hollande announced that he would not seek a second term.

Valls broadly shares the pro-business leaning that prompted many left-wing voters to turn their back on Socialist Hollande after voting him into power in 2012.
