In his first television interview since announcing his intention to return to politics, former French president and thrice-married Nicolas Sarkozy blasted President François Hollande's socialist government and its policies – including its legalization of gay marriage last year.
The Connexion reports:
Mr Sarkozy accused the socialist government of "humiliating families and humiliating people who love the family" by introducing the legislation allowing same-sex marriage, though he said getting rid of the law was not a priority when so many were jobless.
Back in 2012, Hollande defeated Sarkozy 51.6%-48.3% in the presidential election.
The Guardian reports that a recent poll puts support for Hollande at 13%, the lowest for any modern French president. The paper adds that at his lowest, Sarkozy still had 28% popularity.
