Nicolas Sarkozy is new political headache for Hollande
Nicolas Sarkozy will announce his political comeback next Thursday, immediately after a press conference by President Francois Hollande, friends said yesterday.
Mr Hollande, humiliated by an ex-girlfriend Valerie Trierweiler's memoirs and weakened by a mutiny within Socialist ranks, now faces the prospect of being upstaged by Mr Sarkozy.
The former conservative president, who withdrew from politics after being defeated by Mr Hollande in 2012, will relaunch himself as the man "to save France" a close aide said.
"He is determined to settle the score with Hollande," Mr Sarkozy's former adviser Henri Guainot said. Mr Sarkozy is set for a long-campaign. (© Daily Telegraph)
