The French Socialist government of Francois Hollande is in crisis after revelations that a former budget minister held undeclared accounts in Switzerland and Singapore.
Jerome Cahuzac has admitted he lied to Parliament for months about the accounts.
President Hollande has announced plans for a new law to clean up French politics and has given cabinet members until Monday to declare their assets.
