Veteran leftist Martine Aubry entered the race on Tuesday to run for the opposition Socialist Party in the 2012 presidential election, as the left reworks its battle plan after losing its star candidate.

Aubry, the Socialist Party leader and a former labor minister who was behind cutting the working week to 35 hours, told supporters in the northern city of Lille, where she is mayor, that she wanted to boost France's competitiveness while also protecting low-income citizens.

Aubry will compete with ex-party leader Francois Hollande, ranked ahead of her in opinion polls, in a selection contest that will wind up in October, six months before the election.
