Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Short answer, no. Arnaud Montebourg, the promoter of the 6th Republic concept, was beaten in the socialist primary and remains in a fairly restricted role while hoping for a ministerial (even prime ministerial) position. So no 6th Republic talk.

Hollande as president, however, would probably take a contrary direction to the monarchic concentration of power at the Elysée which has been accentuated by Sarkozy. It wouldn't be the 6th Republic, but it would be an improvement on an extension of the reign of King Sarko.
