Group Urges Obama to Run for President - of France

Tracy FergusonFeb 28, 2017

The Obama17 petition is now circulating with the aim of gathering 1 million signatures to convince the former US president to run for office in France.

Even though the former US president can not legally run in the two-round April-May election as a foreigner, the jokesters online petition has been signed by more than 40,000 people.

There will be indeed so many obstacles for Barack Obama and a hell lot of formalities to be done that he would probably choose to stay from France rather becoming their president. The slogan, of course: "Oui on peut", French for "Yes we can".

Michelle Williams from "Manchester by the Sea" is probably the only nominee with any chance, but there is no stopping Davis . Best animated feature: "Kubo and the Two Strings"; "Moana"; "My Life as a Zucchini"; "The Red Turtle"; " Zootopia ".

The French presidential campaign has been marked by scandal, surprises and upsets as the April election approaches. "Why not hire him as president of France?". And, over 27,000 people have already signed it.

"[He] has the best resume in the world for the job".

"We were thinking about French politics and saying that we were fed up with the fact that we all the time had to vote against someone", he says, "and how it would be cool to be able to vote for someone we admire".

Le Pen's proposals include slashing legal immigration, deporting illegals, prioritising French citizens for jobs and housing, holding a referendum on leaving the EU (Frexit?), and increasing police size and powers. "He's Barack Obama", one of the campaign organizers told CNN. Organizers say "it is still possible to vote for a president and not against a candidate".

The French site is seeking public support to convince Obama to run for presidential elections in France. If no candidate wins at least 50 per cent of the vote, the top two candidates go forward to a second round on May 7.

The campaign so far has been tainted with scandal and right-wing rhetoric, with the far-right National Front candidate Marine Le Pen and the conservative Les Republicains candidate Francois Fillon both involved in various hiring scandals, and socialist candidate Benoit Hamon and leftist candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon trailing in the polls.
