A former member of the National Assembly, she plays a prominent role in French politics and has held several ministerial positions so far in her career. An ambitious woman, she has also aimed for the president’s position and was the Socialist candidate in the 2007 French presidential election but lost to Nicolas Sarkozy. Had she won the election, she would have become France’s first female president, but it was not meant to be. Ever the resilient politician, she ran for presidency again in 2012, but lost badly in the primaries. But in spite of the ups and downs in her political career, she remains a major figure in the country’s politics. Appointed as the Minister of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy in the Valls government, she holds a powerful portfolio in the French political scenario. The mother of four children, she is known to campaign more on family and social issues rather than on economic or foreign policy issues, and has often been criticized for this. A beautiful and glamorous lady, she has also made the headlines because of her personal relationships
