French candidates canvass for votes from despairing farmers
French presidential candidate Francois Fillon will remain in the race despite announcing that he is under formal investigation.
According to the allegations, Mr Fillon paid his spouse and parliamentary assistant, Penelope more than €680,000 (£581,000) of taxpayers' money for work.
Fillon has not been charged but has been summoned for questioning by an investigating magistrate on March 15.
Fillon, 62, leader of the center-right Les Republicains Party, won party primary elections in November by highlighting his scandal-free image.
The date is just two days before the deadline for candidates to submit their final applications.
Trump pledges 'buy American' measures in address to Congress
The calls for bipartisanship with which Trump ended his speech weren't a gesture of outreach but a demand for submission. Compared to President Barack Obama's first address in 2009, Trump's early ratings are down by 17 percent.
A former prime minister during Nicolas Sarkozy's presidency, he was selected late past year in national primaries held by the centre-right Republicans that attracted some four million voters.
The "fake jobs" allegations, first brought to light by French weekly Le Canard Enchaine, have dogged Fillonand his presidential campaign for weeks.
At the rally, Le Pen accused ex-financier Macron of being backed by banks and media groups, and said the justice system was being used to influence the outcome of the election. Chirac received almost 20 million additional votes in the second round, while Le Pen gained only 700,000.
Opinion polls now put him lagging in third place for the first round of the French election, behind Front National leader Marine Le Pen and centre-left independent candidate Emmanuel Macron.
Penelope was also employed at an art magazine from May 2012 to December 2013, where she was paid roughly 5,000 euros a month. But he had earlier promised to step out of the presidential race if he was placed under formal investigation.
