Francois Hollande could face a challenger from his Socialist Party camp in a primary ahead of next year's election, the party head said Sunday, as a new poll showed the French president falling further in public opinion.Hollande's ratings are so poor that, as things stand, he appears unlikely to beat either far-right leader Marine Le Pen or whichever candidate is chosen by the center-right in primaries later this year.Socialist Party head Jean-Christophe Cambadelis told Journal du Dimanche newspaper in an interview that December or January would be a good time to organise the primary, which many in the socialist camp have been calling for due to Hollande's growing unpopularity.
