A photo taken on November 26, 2012 in Paris shows the logo of the UMP party. France's main right-wing opposition party was close to collapse today after talks failed to resolve a bitter leadership dispute and an ex-prime minister vowed to take the battle to the courts. The contested leadership vote has thrown into turmoil ex-president Nicolas Sarkozy's UMP -- still reeling from its loss of the presidency and parliament this year -- and raised the spectre of an unprecedented split on the right. Called in to mediate the damaging dispute, party heavyweight Alain Juppe threw in the towel after only 45 minutes of talks between ex-prime minister Francois Fillon and party secretary general Jean-Francois Cope.
