Juppe For President? Guterres For UN Sec Gen?

ALAIN JUPPE has been installed as 6/4 (40% chance) favourite by William Hill to win the next French Presidential election. Hills make Nicolas Sarkozy 11/4 (26%) second favourite, with Marine Le Pen the 4/1 (20%) third favourite. 'M Juppe is the man to beat, but he will face some high profile opposition en route to the Presidency' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

William Hill have made Antonio Guterres their 7/4 (63%) favourite to become the next United Nations Secretary General, with New Zealand's Helen Clark the 4/1 (20%) second favourite. 'This long-running market still looks difficult to call, although Guterres appears to be in pole position' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe
