FranÃ§ois Bayrou, on the same day as the only inter-round debate in the French presidential election: “Je ne voterai pas pour Sarkozy.” However, he would not say whether he would vote blank or for Royal, and he said he would “probably not” make any more announcements before Sunday’s runoff.
That’s as close as Royal is going to get to an endorsement. It is pretty clear where Bayrou stands. His problem–and Royal’s–is that much of the rest of his party leans very strongly towards the right, especially with an eye to the National Assembly elections that are coming up in June. A radio poll confirmed that most of the UDF deputies have indicated they will vote for Sarkozy.
