Segolene Royal and her ex will fight for the socialist candidate Eliseo

The fundraising for the presidential elections in France in 2012 were encouraged Thursday when François Hollande announced that he would compete with his former partner Ségolène Royal for the Socialist Party candidate. The Hollande's approval ratings have risen in recent weeks and is now well ahead of Royal, the Socialist candidate defeated by Nicolas Sarkozy in the 2007 presidential election.

After his defeat four years ago, Royal announced her separation from Hollande, who has four children. The Socialist Party, the main opposition party and situated in the opinion polls, will announce the winner of its "primary" in October. Aspiring candidates must register by mid-July. "No time to lose," Hollande told supporters in the town of Tulle, its political headquarters in central France.

"That's why ... I stand as a candidate." The International Monetary Fund chief, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, is considered the best candidate to beat Sarkozy left if both confirmed that go to the elections. Socialist Party leader Martine Aubry, the president also leads in the polls. Hollande and Royal, the only two candidates who have said until now his intention to stand, are worse off in the polls.

Royal star has faded since his election campaign in 2007. Royal and Hollande, dating from his years of college, were often compared to the past with Hillary and Bill Clinton for their mutual political ambitions. Since their separation the couple has been very distant, but both are still popular, Hollande more among party members and Royal between left-wing youth.
