Sarkozy's party wins less than expected majority

President Nicolas Sarkozy's conservative party won a comfortable but smaller than expected majority in France's parliamentary elections Sunday, with it and its allies getting at least 330 of the 577 National Assembly seats. With all but 36 seats left to call, the opposition left enjoyed a stunning rebound in the decisive second-round vote and did far better that even they had anticipated, according to the Interior Ministry. Official results showed the left with at least 206 seats.
