A new poll has revealed the majority of the French do not regret Sarkozy's five years in office.

The poll, launched by international radio station RTL, found 55 percent of those asked “personally, do you regret having had Nicolas Sarkozy as your president?” responded no - 39 percent said not at all, and 16 percent said not really.

Of the 44 percent who responded yes, 20 percent said they regretted his term a lot, and 24 percent a little.

The poll also showed 66 percent of National Front voters in the 2012 election regretted Sarkozy’s presidency, while 32 percent said the opposite.

"Memories of Nicolas Sarkozy are clearly still quite strong among Marine le Pen's supporters, with two thirds of them saying they regret him being president,” said the directors of the study.
