FFRENCH President Nicolas Sarkozy was at the centre of a furious row last night after parliament voted to grant him a 140 per cent pay rise.
Jean-Francois Cope, the head of the Union for a Popular Movement parliamentary group, said the President's salary would be brought into line with that of the Prime Minister, who earns E240,000 ($375,000) a year.
Mr Sarkozy earns E101,488 a year - less than his ministers and far less than his peers in other European countries.
