French First Lady regrets attacking Hollande’s ex
London: Controversial French First Lady Valerie Trierweiler has admitted that attacking President Francois Hollande’s former partner Segolene Royal was “a mistake.”
The 47-year-old journalist has said that calling on voters to back Royal’s opponent in parliamentary elections in June was a wrong thing to do.
“It was a mistake that I regret,” the Daily Mail quoted her, as telling Ouest France newspaper.
“I was clumsy and it was misinterpreted. I had not realised that I was no longer just an ordinary citizen. It will not happen again,” she said.
Royal, who has four children with Francois Hollande, had hoped to win the seat of La Rochelle, and then become the speaker of the Paris parliament.
But her ambitions were thwarted following the tweet that Trierweiler sent calling on Socialists to back another candidate.
