Has he already lost?
Issued on: Modified:
There's bad news for French President Nicolas Sarkozy in Tuesday's papers - fresh corruption allegations, calls for someone within his party to launch a coup against him, and angry teachers going out on strike.
Investigative website Mediapart reveals the president took a luxury holiday at the Venice Cipriani in the 90s - paid for by a man now being investigated for allegedly accepting kickbacks from arms deals and abuse of public funds.
France Soir asks if he's already lost the presidential election - and if it's time for someone else to stand against him as the right-wing candidate.
Liberation says the right is running scared - while Le Parisien headlines on a national teachers' strike that could close thousands of schools today.
