Hollande Braces For Pain In French Local Vote, Far Right Set For Gains

France's ruling Socialist party is bracing for potentially heavy losses in mid-term local election on Sunday, a vote that could jeopardize reforms and hand major gains to the far-right National Front. Voters will elect mayors in towns and villages across the country. Dissatisfaction with President Francois Hollande's rule - his approval rate is at record lows of 19 percent in opinion polls - and a string of legal issues involving opposition conservatives are predicted to affect turnout and help the anti-immigrant Front (FN), which hopes to win outright in a record number of towns.
