In France they have some time ago elected the new president for next five years. Is their presidental function somehow different among the others in EU?

Do they have parliamentary elections and how they works?

France is a republic. The executive branch itself has two leaders: the President of the Republic, currently François Hollande, who is head of state and is elected directly by universal adult suffrage for a 5-year term, and the Government, led by the president-appointed Prime Minister, currently Jean-Marc Ayrault.

The French parliament is a bicameral legislature comprising a National Assembly and a Senate.[92] The National Assembly deputies represent local constituencies and are directly elected for 5-year terms. The Senate's legislative powers are limited; in the event of disagreement between the two chambers, the National Assembly has the final say.
