PARIS, Mar 30 (Reuters) France's Constitutional Council said today it had approved the government's youth jobs law, leaving it to President Jacques Chirac to either sign it into law or withdraw it under pressure from protesters.

Student and trade unions have mobilised millions in recent weeks in protests demanding the law be withdrawn, but Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin has insisted it is necessary to reform France's rigid labour laws to create more jobs.
