UMP hits electoral hump

Who will take over from Nicolas Sarkozy as chairman of the opposition UMP? At the time of writing, no one knows. Former Prime Minister François Fillon and General Secretary Jean-François Copé both claim victory after the party faithful voted on Sunday. Organisational glitches and allegations of ballot-rigging have turned the contest into a PR fiasco for the party. That's the focus for this look at the French press on Monday 19th November, 2012.

Le Figaro reports on the “Folle Soirée dans les deux QG” (“Crazy evening at the two campaign headquarters”) 

Le Parisien-Aujourd’hui-en-France headlines “Incroyable suspens à l’UMP” (“Incredible suspense for the UMP”) and "Le vote était très mal organisé" (“The vote was very badly organised”)
 
 
Le Figaro leads: "Gaza serre les rangs dans la résistance et l'esprit de revanche" ("Gaza closes ranks in resistance …")
