SOT, Olivia Laurenjoye, campaign director for conservative presidential candidate Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet (French): “I just talked with NKM [Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet] a few moments ago. She stayed in hospital last night. I cannot give you more details about her medical condition. Nathalie is sorry she cannot participate at the end of her campaign. The team will continue the campaign. Her substitute will continue the appointments until tomorrow evening. Nathalie thanked all the people who showed her sympathy. In particular the Prime Minister. She is very touched by the marks of affection and by the initiative of the Parisians and elected representatives to go tomorrow at 6 pm for a rally against violence and respect for pluralism. The only visits she will receive are those of her children. Thank you.”
