Defiant Fillon says 'no one' can stop France election bidEmbattled French presidential hopeful Francois Fillon vowed that “no one” could force him to quit as he dug in despite calls to withdraw over an expenses scandal, with party leaders heading for a crisis meeting Monday over his candidacy. “No one today can prevent me being a candidate,” Fillon said in a TV interview late Sunday in which he again said an investigation into allegations he gave his wife a highly paid fake parliamentary job was politically motivated. “Of course it is aimed at stopping me being a candidate,” said Fillon, who is to be charged on March 15.
