Marine Le Pen Faces Another Scandal on EP Fund Misuse

Marine Le Pen Faces Another Scandal on EP Fund Misuse

Le Pen has also promise to seek an exit from the European Union, revoke the independence of France's central bank, and push for reintroduction of national currencies so she can re-denominate French loans in the new French franc.

The latest comments from conservative Francois Fillon, who has accused the Socialist government of failing to protect candidates, underline the increasingly ugly tone of France's campaign.

Opinion polls show Le Pen leading a fragmented field in the first round but then losing to independent centrist Emmanuel Macron in a second round run-off.

The first round of the presidential election is set for April 23 and the runoff on May 7.

"We do not accept any violence against any candidate", he added.

"I believe that regardless of who will be elected, whether it will be [Emmanuel] Macron, [Francois] Fillon, [Marine] Le Pen, the relations between Russian Federation and France will change", di Borgo said, adding that it was necessary to improve their current state.

"My understanding is that the news from French domestic politics and polls are behind this re-pricing of OATs, as are the more distant prospects for Italian elections - now more likely to take place in autumn at the earliest, versus as soon as June that was feared before the weekend", said Commerzbank strategist David Schnautz.

Showdowns to shape the India-Aust series
Yes, that can sound like "A quick five wickets and we're back in the match". Jadeja bowling into the rough to the left-handers makes it so hard to play.

Ms Le Pen will lead in the first round of voting with 27 per cent, followed by Mr Macron with 25 per cent and Mr Fillon with 19 per cent, the poll showed.

Both Fillon and Le Pen have also attacked investigations of their use of allegedly fake parliamentary aides as an attempt to influence the election by outgoing Socialist President Francois Hollande.

Polls now show independent centrist Emmanuel Macron as the most likely victor, though analysts caution against any firm forecasts after a rollercoaster campaign and the surprises of Brexit and Trump in 2016.

They both deny wrongdoing and claim the investigations are politically motivated.

Macron got a boost on Friday when German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she was ready to meet him.

"French people can't put up with mass immigration any more!" she said, again to cheers from the crowd waving French flags. However, his campaign as faltered in the wake of allegations that he had paid his wife Penelope at least €650,000 of public funds for a suspected fake parliamentary assistant job spanning 15 years.
