BIOGRAPHY

Nicolas Sarkozy was bornon 28 January 1955 in France. Sarkozy surprised many when France decided to exercise its muscle by actively supporting the rebel Libyan National Transitional Council. In the ensuing NATO air campaign against Muammar Qaddafi, France flew far more strike sorties than the U. S. But despite the rebels' victory and political rival Dominique Strauss-Kahn's' seamy self-destruction amid accusations of sexual misconduct with a maid in a New York hotel room, Sarkozy remains unpopular at home, with a sub-40% approval rating. 2011 Highlight: On Oct. 19 Sarkozy announced the birth of his daughter Giulia, the first child born to a sitting French president, by his third wife, former model Carla Bruni.
