Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
According to the Canard, Santini got his position because his suppléant, who will take his seat in parliament, was a close advisor of Sarkozy ; Fadela Amara had repeatedly asked the PS for a winnable circonscription in Paris but failed to get it, and was angry with the PS.

Sarkozy also tried to get the PS head of the Britanny region ; Eric Orsenna, former Mitterrand advisor and writer ; and Christiane Taubira, who is from Guyana, a member of the center left PRG and who was that party's candidate in 2002 (where she made a dent in the "minority" vote)
