French parliament speaker Bartolone 'behaving like godfather'

FRENCH PAPERS, 20/01/14. Domestic politics dominate. Parliament is debating a law that will prevent politicians from holding both national and local posts. Three out of four MPs and senators currently double up. One paper profiles House Speaker Claude Bartolone, attacking him for behaving like a "godfather". Meanwhile, Le Parisien-Aujourd'hui-en-France foresees a halving of petrol prices at the pump by 2017. Join us for this review of the French press.

Some articles from today’s French press review:

Le Figaro reports on legislation before parliament to outlaw politicians from holding office at both the national and local level
 
 
Le Parisien-Aujourd’hui-en-France reports on a possible summer reshuffle, saying Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault wants to stay in the job and could do so until 2015
 
There is little coverage about the ongoing 'President and Actress' scandal. However, Le Figaro reports that Hollande’s partner Valérie Trierweiler is out of hospital and now at La Lanterne, a presidential residence near the Château de Versailles just outside Paris.
