Where next for Le Front National?


Marine Le Pen was decisively defeated in the French Presidential Election; However, Le Front National remains a potent force. The party will probably gain seats in the élections to the National Assembly next month. The result in the presidential poll is creditable in that this is by far the best result the party has ever had in any election. Marine Le Pen did twice as well as her father did in 2002.

The partys euroscepticism is shared by aboyt half of the population. Note that FN does not advocate withdrawal fro, the EU; FN wants to leave the Eurozone and to use the Franc as the currency again.
