The French Prime minister Manuel Valls has deemed “possible” that Marine Le Pen, the candidate of the national Front, wins the French presidential election in may 2017, at an economic forum in Berlin on Thursday. “It is possible “, he said, after being asked about the possibility of a victory of Marine Le Pen in the wake of the election of Donald Trump to the us presidential election. “All the polls say that candidate Marine Le Pen will be present in the second round, ( … ), it means that the balance of the French political life will totally change,” emphasized Manuel Valls in the forum, and alert them of the danger of the extreme right ” at the time the attention focuses on the presidential primaries to the left and to the right. “Of course, I am not confusing anything. Trump was the candidate of a major party, the republican Party, which already prevailed at the Congress, and many States in the United States. But it is, of course, his speech and his proposals of concern, ” said Manuel Valls.
The national Front had already reached the second round of the presidential election in 2002, when Jean-Marie Le Pen, father of the current candidate of the FN, had disposed of to the general surprise, the socialist Prime minister Lionel Jospin, before being largely defeated by Jacques Chirac. With the rise of ” populism “, Manual Valls has defended a “globalisation at the service of the people” to meet their ” anger “. It has notably called for Europe to “come out of the innocence” in the matter of international trade and on immigration, to say more clearly, ” who can and cannot enter and remain on european soil.
