Despite polls predicting a Sarkozy win, a former Prime Minister, Francois Fillon finished first while another ex-Prime Minister, Alain Juppe was second. Sarkozy, who was gracious in defeat said in his concession speech, “I have no bitterness, I have no sadness, and I wish the best for my country.”

He has also thrown his backing behind Fillon who will face Juppe for the second round of the primaries next week Sunday.
