PARIS - Francois Fillon on Monday urged his conservative party to rally around his candidacy, saying it was the only legitimate one despite calls by many in his camp for him to pull out of the French presidential race over allegations of misuse of public funds.

"It is time for everybody to get their act together and come back to their senses," he told senior party members gathered to discuss the crisis, according to a text.
