A poll showed that sixty percent of the French, including 72 percent of right-wing voters and half of left-wingers, back government plans for a vast public debate on France's 'national identity.' President Nicolas Sarkozy is also to take part in a debate on the subject in December. The debates will end with a congress early next year on the twin questions of 'what it means to be French today' and 'what immigration contributes to our national identity.'
