Nicolas Sarkozy's presidency
Guaino was responsible for writing the so-called 'Dakar Speech' which Sarkozy delivered in 2007 which was criticised for being patronising towards the African continent.
On 3 September 2012, he unexpectedly announced his intention to run for the presidency of the Union for a Popular Movement. Guaino stated that his aim was to represent the gaullist component of UMP's heritage in this internal election. However, he failed to get enough endorsements, and announced his support to Jean-François Copé.
