Days before the second round of France’s parliamentary election, President Emmanuel Macron’s administration is facing a political scandal.

A French newspaper claims the man he tasked with cleaning up politics, JusticeMinister Francois Bayrou, incorrectly paid an assistant with EU funds.

The allegations come as Bayrou is trying to pass a new law to tackle corruption.

Al Jazeera’s David Chater reports from Paris.
