Marine Le Pen, the candidate for the National Round in the second round, answered questions from BFM television in a lengthy live interview this afternoon. First, is she ready to lead a country? “I have been elected for decades. We did not know Macron when he came to Elysee,” he immediately introduces the extremist candidate.
If the French chose her, who would she work with? “If the French choose me, it’s because they do not want this within themselves, and because the French want to run the country for them. I do not want to give them a government with McKinsey’s technicians, I want policies.”She insists. “I will not tell you who I am or my prime minister, and no one will. But it will be a politician, a group leader who respects the consistency of my plan.”
In pension reform, the two candidates have different ideas. Macron believes Le Pen’s comments will not be funded, which he calls “carabistouls”. The candidate replied that she did not argue very well and that she considered Macron to be brutal and aggressive towards her. As for the Marines, reports of Macron’s retirement are based on distorted studies, and according to him, “yes, it is possible to change the system without compromising it.”
And the union?
The RN candidate left the EU and the euro for a while, but only under certain conditions. “I make demands to be proactive. But strangely, other countries besides France do the same. For example, Germany makes demands to defend its national interests. France does not, it is strange.”, According to the petitioner for the “Federation of European Nations”. Kesako? “For example, with Poland, Hungary and Germany claiming that the national constitution is the supreme law of the people. So rights and treaties cannot change them.”
What is the position against Russia?
The National Rally candidate has already used Russian funds to fund his activities.
In 2014, the National Front used Russian funds: borrowed from the first Czech-Russian bank (FCBR), a Russian bank, and closed in 2016. This time, for the campaign presidential election, Marine Le Pen won. Hungarian funds. Does she have a conflict of interest with Russia? “Yes, I have a debt, but I have to repay it, that is the only obligation, and nothing else. If I were to seek money for Russia, no one in France would want to give it to me.”, The candidate justifies. “I have no other obligations to Russia like any French citizen borrows money.”
The candidate assures that there is no reason for Russian troops to go to Russia before they leave Ukrainian territory and before the peace agreement is signed.
The position of the far-right candidate remains dire. “These are all contrary to our values. Women should be respected. These are uniforms imposed by Islamists and those who do not wear them should be pressured. It is a fine to wear a mask,” she lets go.
What happens when Marine Le Pen wins and loses? Will her father be in custody if she wins? “If there is victory, my father will be in Elise. If I lose, I will defend the French because I have done this all my life.”
