French conservatives choose candidate for 2017 presidential election| Reuters

By Marine Pennetier and Pascale Antonie | PARIS PARIS French conservative voters were choosing their candidate on Sunday in a primary contest whose winner is seen as the likely victor in next spring's presidential election.With the French left in disarray under the deeply unpopular President Francois Hollande, pollsters suggest that the centre-right presidential nominee will meet and defeat the National Front's eurosceptic, anti-immigration leader Marine Le Pen in a vote next May.Former prime minister Alain Juppe, a moderate conservative, had until recently appeared on track to win the nomination of the Les Republicains party and its centre-right allies.But over the past week the contest has been transformed into a tight race between Juppe, former president Nicolas Sarkozy and Francois Fillon, who served as prime minister under Sarkozy from 2007 to 2012.
