Brigitte Bardot Considers to Run for President in France


'Someone's voice is needed to defend animals as neither the Right nor the Left give a damn,' Brigitte Bardot says.

Former screen siren Brigitte Bardot is contemplating running for president in her native France after accusing the country's politicians of ignoring her pleas for stricter animal rights laws. The "And God Created Woman" star has been asked by the Ecology Alliance party to run for France's top job in the 2012 elections.

The party champions animal rights and campaigns against the ritual slaughter of livestock by Muslims for halal meat, and both policies agree with Bardot's political standing. And the former actress admits she is considering hitting the campaign trail after she was treated like an "imbecile" by current leader Nicolas Sarkozy.

She says, "Someone's voice is needed to defend animals as neither the Right nor the Left give a damn!. Sarkozy took me for an imbecile by making promises he didn't keep." The Ecology Alliance party's chairman Antoine Waechter adds, "We think she is the best person to represent us for the presidency. If she accepts, a final decision will be taken next year."

Bardot has long been outspoken about her controversial views on animal rights, Muslims and immigrants in France, receiving several fines for racist remarks.
