Ed Miliband MP, Leader of the Labour Party, said:
"I congratulate Francois Hollande on his election as President of France.
"I know from our conversations in London earlier this year and from his victory speech tonight of his determination to help create a Europe of growth and jobs, in a way that is responsible and sustainable.
"This new leadership is sorely needed as Europe seeks to escape from austerity. And it matters to Britain.
"In his own campaign, he has shown that the centre-left can offer hope and win elections with a vision of a better, more equal and just world.
"I look forward to working together with him in the months and years ahead."
