French opposition head urged to step down
(05-27 16:58)

The leader of France's embattled main opposition party faced resignation calls Tuesday after shock claims that invoices for former president Nicolas Sarkozy's election campaign were billed as party expenses.
Several UMP party heavyweights, including Sarkozy's former prime minister Francois Fillon, demanded that Jean-Francois Cope quit immediately over the latest twist in a corruption scandal embroiling Cope and a PR firm belonging to his associates. --AFP
