- Story Text: Former prime minister Francois Fillon won the conservative ticket for next year's presidential election in France by a wide margin, beating ex-premier Alain Juppe, partial results of a primaries' vote showed on Sunday (November 27).
Polls closed at 7:00 local time (0600 GMT), and volunteers immediately began tallying the votes.
Fillon won 69.5 percent of the votes based on 2,121 polling stations out of a total 10,228, the election's organisers said.
Organisers of the Republicains party and its centre-right allies have warned ahead of the vote that partial results may not be representative of final results, with votes in rural areas being counted first.
