Former French President Jacques Chirac Has Died At 86
Chirac was France's president from 1995-2007.
Longtime French politician Jacques Chirac has died. He was 86 years old.
Chirac entered French politics in the 1960s, when he joined the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers. From there, he quickly moved up the political ladder.
Chirac served as the mayor of Paris for 18 years. He also served as France's prime minister from 1974-76, and again from 1986-88. He moved on in 1995 to serve as France's president, an office he held until 2007.
Outside of French politics, he was well-known for his vocal opposition of the U.S. invasion on Iraq.
In 2014, Chirac's family announced he would no longer make public appearances due to ongoing health issues. He's survived by his wife and two children.
