France - Third term for Chirac?
Both the wife and a former cabinet minister of French President Jacques Chirac have made hints in recent days that he may attempt to win a third term in office. If this were to occur it could harm Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy in the first and possibly second round of voting, allowing presumed Socialist candidate Segolene Royal an easier election victory. Current polls show that she would lead Sarkozy by just two percentage points if the two were in a runoff.
