Nicolas Sarkozy: looking for a comeback?

Will Nicolas Sarkozy stage a comeback in French politics? The former president is keeping quiet, but others are talking for him, including one of his party's top leaders. Also this week, after the surprise resignation of the Pope, the French president's reaction has sparked controversy. This as the relationship between the Socialists and the Church is already being tested by the vote on a bill legalising same-sex marriage and adoption.

On the set:

  • Philip Turle, Journalist, RFI
  • Jean-Marc Gonin, Senior Writer, Le Figaro Magazine

Prepared by Marc Perelman and Léa Berdugo
