PARIS， Nov. 27 (Xinhua) -- Former Prime Minister Francois Fillon won the center-right Republicans party's primary runoff on Sunday to represent the biggest opposition party in the 2017 French presidential race.
After counting ballots in 8，081 out of a total of 10，228 polling stations， the 62-year-old liberal politician led the second round of the conservative primary with 67.4 percent of the vote against his moderate rival Alain Juppe.
"It is a fundamental victory built on convictions. Progressively， I felt this wave broke all the written scenarios in advance. My approach was understood，" Fillon told supporters.
"The future is ahead of us. We have all the assets to be a sovereign nation， to lead Europe. Now， I have the duty to convince the whole country that our project is the only one that can lift us up，" he added.
Fillon gained a spectacular momentum more than a week ahead of the primary's first round on Nov. 20， which saw former president Nicolas Sarkozy out of the field. Fillon served under Sarkozy as prime minister from 2007 to 2012.
He had lagged in opinion surveys for months far behind Juppe and Sarkozy before clinching a surprise victory in the first round.
Advocating pro-market reforms， Fillon campaigned on a "more radical project，" involving a slash of 500，000 public sector jobs， twice as Juppe pledged， lower corporate taxes and extended work time in a bid to reduce public spending and revive economy.
On foreign policy， he called on Paris and Moscow to "sit down around the same table" to enhance bilateral ties and help end the anti-terrorist war in Syria and Iraq.
The differences between his campaigning platform and Juppe's were deemed to largely lie in social policies. Admitting his defeat， Juppe， 71， who had long been the polls' favorite， "congratulate Francois Fillon for his great victory."
"I support him and I wish him good luck for his presidential campaign and the victory in May，" he told supporters after results were released.
"The moment has come for our political family to mobilize around Francois Fillon to guarantee the change that France needs more than ever in 2017， " Sarkozy said in a statement following Fillon's declaration of victory.
