The French president defends son against critics who allege he is too inexperienced to oversee a prominent business district.
Paris, France (WiredPRNews.com) – France’s president Nicolas Sarkozy’s recently described his son as being thrown to the wolves by critics who say Jean Sarkozy is too inexperienced for a new position he is seeking. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Jean Sarkozy, who has never graduated college, but is currently studying law at Sorbonne, is a candidate to chair the quasi- governmental agency EPAD. The job would reportedly require overseeing real estate and other administration in a prominent business district that employs 150,000 people.
Sarkozy was elected to serve on a regional council, which qualifies him as a candidate for the position. As noted by the AP, an online petition calling for Sarkozy to drop out of the running for the position has been launched and has generated over 44,000 signatures.
President Sarkozy is quoted in the report as stating of criticism about his son, “Throwing someone to the wolves — without any reason for it and in an excessive way — is never good.”
