France goes to the polls for parliamentary elections expected to determine the extent and pace of reform under new President Francois Hollande.

Voting for the lower house of parliament begins with a first round, followed by run-offs a week later.

Correspondents say if Hollande's Socialist Party can win a majority, he will have the mandate to push through bold tax and spend policies.

There is also a closely watched battle between the far right and the far left.
