France’s
far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen says the
will “die” and she vows to save France from globalization.

During
a Sunday campaign rally in Lille, Le Pen said that the upcoming
elections will be the next stage in a global popular rebellion.

“The
European Union will die because the people do not want it anymore …
arrogant and hegemonic empires are destined to perish,” she added.

She
stressed that the time has arrived to overcome globalists, and added
that her main rivals in the French presidential elections, conservative
Francois Fillon and centrist Emmanuel Macron, were both guilty of
treason because of their pro- and pro-market stances.
Le Pen added that she would replace the EU with a different Europe which she said would be called “the Europe of the people.”

Fans
cheer for Marine Le Pen, French National Front (FN) political party
leader and candidate for French 2017 presidential election, during a
political rally in Lille, France, March 26, 2017. 

“It must be done in a rational, well-prepared way,” she said in interview with Le Parisien
daily. “I don’t want chaos. Within the negotiation calendar I want to
carry out … the euro would be the last step because I want to wait for
the outcome of elections in Germany in the autumn before renegotiating
it,” she added.
Recent
opinion polls suggest that the far-right leader is likely to win the
first round of France’s election on April 23, but would lose in the
run-off on May 7.
Le Pen, well
known for her anti-immigrant rhetoric, became the leader of the party in
2011 and has promised to hold a referendum on France’s exit from the
EU.   
She launched her
election bid in February with an anti-Islam stance. She has also noted
that if she is elected as president, mosques and places of Islamic
teaching will be closed down.
