Jean-Pierre Chevènement was Jospin's interior minister, resigned in 
August of 2000, over the issue of increased autonomy for Corsica.  This 
was the third time he resigned from a cabinet post because of a policy 
disagreement.

He heads the Mouvement des Citoyens, which best can be described as 
politically lying between the Socialist Party and the right wing.

Hope this helps.
