It took Sarkozy 35k worth of make-up to become the French Prez!January 19th, 2008 - 3:33 pm ICT by admin
London, Jan 19 (ANI): President Nicolas Sarkozy of France splurged 35,000 euros on make-up to impress the French electorate in last years presidential elections.
The French auditors were reportedly stunned to discover that Sarkozy had spent in some cases 450 euros an hour on face and hair makeovers.
However, his defeated rival, Segolene Royal outshone him, by reaching 52,000 euros for make-up and hairdressing, reports the Telegraph.
The commission looking into the expenses of last years presidential candidates, spent six months to decide how much they should be reimbursed by the state.
Judging that the sums were “manifestly excessive” for an activity that was “normally of a personal nature”, it only paid back 12,000 euros to Sarkozy and 17,000 euros to Royal. (ANI)
