November 2016 – FRANCE – Nicolas Sarkozy has conceded defeat in the French rightwing primary vote. The former French president had attempted to stage a comeback for the 2017 elections but was forced to concede after Sunday’s votes saw him slipping further behind his fellow candidates. The country’s former prime ministers Francois Fillon and Alain Juppe were seen qualifying for a second round runoff of France’s conservative primaries on Sunday, first partial results of the vote showed.

The men are now the favorites to go head to head in the US-style voting system on November 27 – with the winner likely to win next May’s election. With votes counted from more than half of polling stations, Fillon was seen to receive 43.5 per cent of the votes, Juppe collecting 27.6 per cent and Sarkozy just 22.1 per cent.
