Le Pen to “Be Stronger Than Ever Before” Even if She Loses Presidential Runoff


I think that Macron will win almost with absolute probability, but I also believe that after the election the National Front will be stronger than ever before.  After the election, Le Pen will become one of the leading players in the French parliament.  These are candidates with different value systems, different visions of France’s future.  So, each of these candidates wanted to not just win, but also to delegitimise their opponent.  Le Pen offered the idea of a sovereign France, distanced from the Euro-Atlantic allies, primarily from the USA.  On the other hand, Macron proposed to continue the policy of François Hollande.  Both candidates spoke of an independent France but understood this independence differently.
