Facing election shipwreck, Sarkozy 'friends' rise up

Facing election shipwreck, Sarkozy 'friends' rise up (France 24)


As conservative leaders in France contemplate a likely defeat in parliamentary elections in June, some among them have rallied around an unlikely figure: defeated former president Nicolas Sarkozy.

The Friends of Nicolas Sarkozy Association was formally established in Paris on Wednesday, fuelling ongoing speculation about the uncertain future of France’s political right. Sarkozy, who lost the May 6 presidential runoff to Socialist rival François Hollande, repeated before and after the vote that he would quit politics if he was defeated.

According to a statement prepared for the press, the mission of the new organisation includes being “vigilant to the way the [Sarkozy] record while in office is represented in public discourse,” and “upholding the ideas and values that he defended during his mandate.”

Brice Hortefeux, a former interior minister under Sarkozy and the head of the new group, told reporters that the former president’s friends would gather in a congenial spirit, and that they did not intend to weigh in on UMP party politics.

France's political classes are convinced that Hollande will win ...

France's political classes are convinced that Hollande will win. Could Nicolas Sarkozy upset them?



Charles Jaigu, Le Figaro's Elysee correspondent, has a theory that the French election could turn out to be like the 1992 general election, with Nicolas Sarkozy cast as John Major. Like Mr Major in '92, Mr Sarkozy has been written off in favour of the pale pink socialist alternative. But that is in part because Mr Hollande has been good at cultivating the largely left-wing journalist classes. By this theory, reality on the ground could trump wishful thinking by the metropolitan elites. But even Sarko supporters admit that the hostility to him is strong enough to deter support and galvanise opponents if it looks like he might make it. Everyone here expects Francois Hollande will win, but there the political classes are working out which permutation of 'ifs' can confound the predictions and keep Mr Sarkozy in office.

This morning's polls have the gap at about five points, but the rate of closing is too slow to change things in time. Mr Hollande is losing about half a point a day. The maths say that each point is worth about 350,000 votes, so – ballpark – Mr Sarkozy needs to find an additional million supporters before Sunday. There is talk of the 22pc who are undecided, but they may choose to remain so, or to vote for Mr Hollande. The betting then remains on Mr Hollande – though unlike in Britain, there is no political gambling here, nor a culture of studying the numbers and challenging assumptions. Instead they just let politicians speak interminably on the TV channels. If Mr Sarkozy knocks Mr Hollande off his stride and comes from behind to win, it will be an epic upset.

Sarkozy's Defeat would be a victory for IRI

Sarkozy's Defeat Might be a Victory for Iran « Commentary Magazine

Though the EU push for negotiations with Iran may be a doubtful strategy, it must be conceded that, although Tehran may intend to use the P5+1 talks to run out the clock, Sarkozy’s approach to the issue has been largely exemplary in his devotion to ensuring the nuclear threat is ended by any agreement. As Karon points out, without Sarkozy, the dynamic within the EU will change for the worse:

Sarkozy has been the leading voice of skepticism over negotiations among Western leaders, and he has taken the lead in pressing both the Obama administration and European governments to adopt the sanctions targeting Iran’s energy exports and banking sector that have had a painful impact on the Iranian economy. Britain supports France’s zero-enrichment demand, but hasn’t been quite as activist in promoting it. London is also more likely, analysts say, to go along with the consensus if Western powers can fashion an interim deal that offers concrete progress in reinforcing barriers to Iran using its nuclear program to create weapons, even if that leaves the issue of Iran’s ongoing enrichment to 3.5 percent unresolved for now. A nuclear compromise involving steps to diminish the danger of weaponization in the near term, but which leaves Iran with the capacity to enrich uranium and at the same time eases international pressure on Tehran, is precisely what the Israelis fear right now. And Sarkozy, while rejecting Israel’s threat to take military action against Iran’s nuclear facilities, could be more willing to push back against a compromise on the enrichment issue than Hollande would be.

Sarkozy’s departure would come at a crucial time in the talks. EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton’s obvious interest in making the dispute disappear without an Iranian surrender needs to be balanced by strong opposition from France.

All this means the May 6 French runoff may be just as important for Israel, the United States and Iran as it is for France.

Admirers see Nicolas Sarkozy as dynamic and decisive but he now faces the very real prospect of becoming the first French leader not to be re-elected for a second term since Valery Giscard d'Estaing in 1981.
