French term or phrase: premier secrétaire du PS
Mais, outre qu'il paraît déjà sous-évalué, François Hollande, premier secrétaire du PS, le chiffre à 15 milliards d'euros, il n'est pas sûr que le regain de croissance suffise à le financer.

First Secretary of the Socialist Party
Explanation:
PS = Parti socialiste. Francois Hollande is the leader of the PS (and also the husband of Segolene Royal, the recent PS candidate of the French presidential election ... pipped at the post by Nicolas Sarkozy ...)

Actually, Andrew's note has reminded me to be a bit more accurate about people's personal lives ... I'm pretty sure that Segolene and Francois have never been married ... but still, they have had four kids and a lot of years together ...

agree  Andrew Levine: He actually separated with her a month or so ago, but yes, this is the correct translation
55 mins
  -> thanks Andrew - I heard vaguely about their separation but have had my head in a big project for the past month so missed the finer details of that breakup - Sarkovy's own love life is interesting too!!

agree  xxxCMJ_Trans: they were never married and now have split (officially because everybody knows that they split ages ago but kept it under wraps because of the elections)
2 hrs
  -> thanks CMJ - thanks for the extra info!
