This weekend, the opposition Socialist party in France will choose its presidential candidate in a second round of primary voting. It's the first time a French political party has held an open primary — up till now, candidates have been chosen by party insiders. Sunday's winner will face-off against President Nicolas Sarkozy in next May's presidential race.
