Critics have accused the Socialist president of procrastination since his election in May.

During the interview, Francois Hollande outlined a series of measures, including spending cuts and extra taxes totalling 30 billion euros.

“We will not spend a euro more in 2013 than in 2012,” he said.

Francois Hollande also said that a planned 75% upper tax rate to be imposed on annual income above 1 million euros ($1.28 million) could be dropped after two years.

However, polls have shown that the public is losing confidence in the government.
