Whom will Hollande choose as prime minister? France2 seemed almost to be pushing Jean-Marc Ayrault, who would be a plausible choice if Hollande wants to emulate Sarkozy and act as his own prime minister. Ayrault is self-effacing, competent, and not ambitious, as far as I know, to become president himself. Friction would be less likely than with Aubry. Other possibilities include Fabius, Moscovici, and Valls, who shared the platform with Ayrault.
