PARIS -- French President Jacques Chirac is expected to announce his retirement from frontline politics on Sunday after a 45-year career that was strong on symbolic gestures but short on concrete reforms.
His announcement, which officials say will be made during a televised address to the nation at 8 p.m. (1900 GMT), will mark the end of an era for France and clear the way for a new generation of younger politicians now vying for power.
I will be glad to see him gone. I hope Sarkozy takes over the reins in France.
