France's local elections will take place on March 15 and 22. In the battle for Paris's City Hall, 10 candidates are jostling for a place in the race. The run-up to the election was marked by the exit of the ruling party's candidate, who stepped down when an intimate video was leaked online. He was replaced by the former health minister, Agnès Buzyn. Three women are now ahead in the polls, including LREM’s Agnès Buzyn, alongside current mayor Anne Hidalgo and Rachida Dati for the Republicans (LR). We look into their programmes for Paris.
