The Guardian skriver:
"The Sarkozy dynasty was embroiled in another nepotism row today, after the French president's 23-year-old son Jean was tipped to head the public agency running Paris's La Défense , one of Europe's biggest business districts.
The young Sarkozy, who has not yet finished his university degree, is currently a local councillor in the wealthy Paris suburb of Neuilly-sur-Seine, where his father rose to power 30 years ago. Dubbed "Prince Jean" by his critics, he has had a meteoric rise to power in his father's old fiefdom and currently leads the rightwing council majority in the Hauts-de-Seine, the richest department in France.""Aux âmes bien nées, la valeur n'attend point le nombre des années", citerade den avgående direktören för l'EPAD, den 65-årige UMP-politikern Patrick Devedjian.
Citatet; ungefär "För själar av ädel härkomst beror inte deras värde på antalet år", från 1600-talspjäsen Le Cid av Pierre Corneille - "Den franska tragedins fader" - kan dock tolkas aningen tvetydligt.
