Local elections: The fight for the French capital

This week, we bring you a special programme dedicated to the upcoming local elections here in France. We begin by looking at who's who in the race to be the next Mayor of Paris. Also, with a struggling French economy and sky-high unemployment, we take you to the towns and cities likely to send a strong message to President Hollande's government. Finally, who said you had to be French to run in these municipal elections? We introduce you to some of the candidates from across the Channel.
