Chirac: No third term

In a slightly odd statement, Jacques Chirac has said that he won't be seeking a third Presidential term. I didn't realise anyone had asked him to. In many ways, this is akin to Stan Collymore's retirement from international football, which came many years after his last appearance for England.
In fact, it would probably serve Chirac better to get re-elected. Laws were introduced by him to protect the serving president from prosecution, mainly because he's a crook and didn't particularly want to be indicted. Once he steps down, he's wide open and I would hope and expect some charges to be levied against him.
