François Hollande (born the 12 August 1954 in Rouen) was the President of the French Republic from 2012 until 2017. A former university teacher, he is a member of the French Socialist Party. Hollande attended the prestigious HEC Paris, École Nationale d'Administration and "Sciences Po". François Mitterrand was considered his mentor; Hollande worked for him as an economic adviser.

"He is a very magnetic man," said The Tulle mayor Bernard Combes, 52, "He is luminous, loyal, kind, and has a brilliant intellect combined with endless goodwill. In short, he's a lovely person, someone you really want to work for. Of course, he's a human being and I'm sure he has some faults, but not so many, and to be honest I'd have difficulty finding one to tell you." [2]

Hollande has four children (born out of wedlock) by Ségolène Royal, his former partner for more than 30 years.

In 2012 he increased the taxes on millionaires to 75 percent.[3] In 2013 Hollande was the least popular president of France in the last 30 years.[4]

Hollande's presidency can justifiably be considered a disaster, with several terror attacks, personal scandals, a very weak and sluggish economy, and protests over reforms.[5]
