PARIS — French President Nicolas Sarkozy has appointed a new government in a marathon weekend reshuffle with faithful allies taking top posts clearly aimed at pleasing his conservative ranks before 2012 presidential elections.

The once-disgraced former prime minister, Alain Juppe, who is mayor of Bordeaux, was put in charge of the Defense Ministry and given the No. 2 spot behind Prime Minister Francois Fillon — who retained his job after submitting his government's resignation Saturday night.

Sunday's appointment positions Juppe, a longtime standard-bearer of the conservatives, for a political renaissance.
