France's Hollande facing pressure for deputies to vote on Syria

Pressure is now mounting on French President Francois Hollande to seek formal approval from the French parliament on the syria intervention issue, which is due to hold a non-voting debate on Syria on September 4.


"Like the US president, who decided to consult the US Congress in the name of democratic principles, the French president must organize, after the debate, a formal vote in parliament," Jean-Louis Borloo, the head of French opposition party UDI, said. A BVA poll on Saturday showed most French people did not want France to take part in action on Syria. (Reuters)
