<- Hard & eacute; e: 0.0042319297790527 sec -> Nicolas Sarkozy returns to the head of the UMP. But not marshal. The former president was elected in the first round on Saturday night at the head of his “political family” -as he said .
It is far from what was promised, before it back down into the arena. Far as the 85% who had worn (already) at the head of the party there ten years. Is that his challenger Bruno Le Maire has largely achieved its goal by collecting 29.18% of the vote, far ahead of Hervé Mariton (6.32%).
As soon announced his victory, the former Head of State thanked the members of the UMP, via Facebook. “Their mobilization, an unprecedented level in the history of our movement is the best response to two years of internal strife and divisions,” he is pleased with reference to the divisions that have plagued the party after the Cope-Fillon war fall 2012.
“The mark of a new beginning”
Above all, Sarkozy wants to show he does not expected to “take action”. “On Monday, I will meet with key officials of our political family in order to create conditions for broader rally,” he said on Facebook. The vote tonight is said the former head of state, “the mark of a new beginning for our political family.”
For if in 2004, Sarkozy had inherited a war machine that had orbited towards the Elysee, it happens this time at the head of a leaded party. For business, for an abysmal debt, the war of egos and rivalries 2017. The former president does not make a mistake, he wants to “change everything” to the UMP. Even the name. Exit as currents, up to a modified organization and new head. Its priorities? “Finding new ideas and bring everyone together.”
Reset, especially the party in working order for the presidential 2017. For if he says nothing at the moment, Sarkozy is certainly not out of retirement to settle for the rue de Vaugirard. It is at the Elysee that he wants to relocate. At the head of UMP he will be able to reorganize his hand, he now has a trump card. The battle for the UMP nomination to the 2017 presidential election will have provided nothing from a path of roses. Just to be convinced to observe the reactions … polished his main rivals this Saturday night.
