Impossible for me to not write an article about former French President: I supported his candidacy for re-election in 2012, I watched most of his speech and follow all the news about him throughout his political mandate. I’m a big fan of Sarkozy and his way of Leading and thinking.
If there is one word that could define Sarkozy, that would be the word « talent » and « charisma ». Sarkozy has a perfect knowledge of the expectations of his audience and he knows how to charm them by touching them directly to the heart. When present in a television broadcast we ‘re quickly captivated by his speech and the energy he distributes. He has the skills of a great leader; giving hope and showing the way to the citizens even in times of crisis.
Sarkozy is someone atypical in the French political landscape due to its casual style of expression and also by the fact he is closer to the needs of people & citizens: it’s these strengths that seduced French people in 2007. All this is completed by an impressive intuition & vision.
Despite all his contradictions, I think Sarkozy is one of the greatest politician of the last 100 years. And maybe he will return to politic in 2017 for the upcoming presidential elections …
« Nicolas Sarkozy was born an outsider. A child of immigrants who grew up outside the circles of the French political elite, Sarkozy beat the odds by slowly climbing up the political mountain until he reached France’s highest peak – the office of the presidency. But how did this short, obese child from a broken home grow up to become the president of France? In Nicolas Sarkozy, explore what Sarkozy did to make it to the top and the political and personal prices he paid to achieve his dreams. »
