Time to decide: yes or no to the European budgetary treaty?

It's time for French politicians to choose their camp: for or against the European budgetary treaty. French dailies are weighing up the political consequences for President François Hollande if the treaty isn’t ratified. Also: playing "cops and robbers" in Marseille’s anti-crime unit: corruption and wrongdoing in the police force comes under the magnifying glass.

Le Parisien sees it as a political challenge: they say François Hollande needs to get left-wing politicians on his side over the European budgetary treaty.

Le Figaro underlines just how many MPs could say "no" to Brussels, while Libération interviews one of the refuseniks.

The left-wing daily also features a long report about systemic corruption within a special police unit in Marseille.

And the southern resort of St. Tropez changes its name to match its glitzy image: Le Parisien reveals all!
