Party heavyweight Juppe, a former premier and foreign minister, will hold a mediation meeting later in the day with the right-winger, who was declared the winner of November 22 knife-edge vote to pick a party leader, Jean-Francois Cope, and his centrist rival Francois Fillon. The talks are to establish who actually won the leadership and whether mutual allegations of ballot rigging have any foundation.
