Sarkozy to run for pres­i­dency in 2017

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Ni­co­las Sarkozy launched a bid to win back the French pres­i­dency, an­nounc­ing he would seek his party’s nom­i­na­tion to run in next year’s elec­tions. The pug­na­cious 61-year-old con­ser­va­tive, who in 2012 ended a five-year term mired in un­pop­u­lar­ity, had made no se­cret of his am­bi­tion to re­con­quer the top of­fice. “I have de­cided to be a can­di­date in the 2017 pres­i­den­tial elec­tions,” Mr Sarkozy wrote in a new book, ‘Tout pour la France’ (All for France), due out this week. Mr Sarkozy’s aides said he has stepped down as the leader of the cen­tre-right Repub­li­cans to fo­cus on his bid. – AFP
