The Defeat Of Sarkozy

Nicholas Sarlozy lost the election. As I had pointed out earlier Sarkozy had met his match in Hollande and in the run off election was defeated. Frankly there is not much to choose between Hollande and Sarkozy, but Sarkozy has bit the dust. What could be the reason for his defeat? Frankly I am at a loss for an answer, but there is a clue and that is the personal life style of the outgoing President.

Sarkozy is a much married man. He first married Marie- Dominique in 1983 the marriage lasted 13 years and the couple divorced in 1996

when Sarkozy married Cecilia Ciganner- Albeniz. The couple was seen together and when Sarkozy was elected President Cecilia Ciganner left him for another man. She is reported to have left Sarkozy for French Morocco national Richard Attias.
These scandals I feel did no credit to Sarkozy though he was not to blame for the divorce with Cecilia. Sarkozy was now smitten with Italian super model Carla Bruno and the couple began

to see each other. They married soon after and have also had a baby. The personal life of any man is his own affair, but a public figure has to be discreet and not run the gauntlet of the yellow press.
Unfortunately enough news was generated about Carla.

In fact when Sarkozy came to India a question of protocol came up as at that time she had not married Sarkozy. The question that crops up is that if a leader is involved in love affairs and is the subject of gossip, how does he lead a nation ?After all he is not a superman. I have my doubts that Sarkozy could provide the French with the type of leadership required, like the great Frenchman De Gaulle. Perhaps somewhere at the back of the mind of the French voter the acts of Sarkozy did not go down well. He has thus been defeated and its bad news for the tabloids and other salacious news papers.
