IN THE PAPERS

An overview of the stories making the French and international newspaper headlines. From Monday to Friday live at 7.20 am and 9.20 am Paris time.

Latest update : 2011-06-28

Can Aubry win?

In Tuesday's French newspapers - Martine Aubry announces her much-awaited presidential candidacy, but still gets upstaged up Nicolas Sarkozy, French parents look enviably on paternity leave in Norway, and the Louvre explains why the Mona Lisa can't be loaned to Florence.

On the day Martine Aubry announces her candidacy - Liberation is asking the whole primary process will really make the socialists electable for centrist voters.

Le Figaro is more interested in Nicolas Sarkozy and his 'big loan' for research and development  - which Les Echos says is a shinign example for Europe to follow.

Le Monde is looking at Norway's generous paternity leave, while the Louvre's curators have been explaining to Le Figaro why the Mona Lisa is too fragile to travel.
