The UMP has announced that Interior Minister and presidential candidate Sarkozy will sign the environmental pact of popular French TV star Nicolas Hulot, following the lead of Socialist Segolene Royal who signed it just days ago. Hulot had thretened to run for president himself if the two didn't sign it, and apparently they both thought that it would not be worth the risk. However, they are not without company. 200,000 fellow Frenchmen and Frenchwomen have already signed the pact, and so has currently 4th place presidential candidate Francois Bayrou.
