Replay of my interviews conducted live for the special coverage from Paris of the French conservative primary.
Live 1 (first round)
Live 2 (second round), with Bruno Cautrès
Former French prime ministers François Fillon and Alain Juppé will vie for the conservative nomination in a primary run-off after handing former president Nicolas Sarkozy a shock defeat on Sunday. *Fillon stunned his opponents by taking more that 44% of the vote, well ahead of Juppé (28%) and Sarkozy (20%). *The former president has conceded defeat and endorsed Fillon for the nomination. Organisers reported strong turnout of around four million voters. The suprising result puts Fillon, a pro-business conservative, in a commanding position ahead of next week's second round.
