Far-right leader Jean-Marie Le Pen urged his supporters to abstain from voting in France's presidential runoff Sunday between conservative Nicolas Sarkozy and Socialist Segolene Royal. Le Pen, speaking at a traditional May Day rally on Tuesday, said he was focusing on next month's two-round parliamentary elections. He placed fourth and was ousted in the April 22 first-round presidential balloting, having received some 3.8 million votes. "I invite voters who trusted me not to cast ballots for Madame Royal or Mr. Sarkozy," Le Pen told at least 5,000 supporters in front of Paris' gilded Opera. "I invite them expressly to abstain massively, reserving themselves for the first round of legislative elections on June 10 and June 17."
