France opposition UMP to hold leadership vote re-run

France opposition UMP to hold leadership vote re-run

PanARMENIAN.Net - The two leadership rivals in France's opposition centre-right UMP party have agreed to hold a re-run of their controversial leadership election, BBC News reported.

The fresh poll, again pitting Jean-Francois Cope and former Prime Minister Francois Fillon against each other, will be held before October next year.

Both claimed victory in November's poll to succeed Nicolas Sarkozy as leader of the UMP.

The dispute had threatened to break the party apart.

Mr Cope was declared the narrow winner of the first vote, but the result was challenged by Mr Fillon, who went on to form a breakaway splinter group of UMP members.
