Marine Le Pen said on Sunday that she was considering giving up the presidency of her party, the National Rally, in the run-up to the 2022 presidential election, to be the "candidate of all French people". "I'm thinking about it. I'm thinking about being able to run as a candidate for all French people, obviously being supported by my movement," said the head of the RN, in the Grand Jury RTL / Le Figaro / LCI.
No "hypocritical falsehood"
Unhappy finalist against Emmanuel Macron in 2017, Marine Le Pen announced her candidacy for the next presidential election on January 16, knowing that it must still be validated at an RN congress in 2021. Asked on Sunday why which she had launched so early in the race, she replied that, "unlike other political leaders", she is "not playing the hypocritical falsehood of saying: I am thinking, I do not know, I am waiting they call me ".
"We are very likely to be able to apply our ideas because I am very likely to be President of the Republic because I think the French have had enough of the situation," she said. According to her, the French "have now understood that we must stop with the ultra-liberalism of unfair competition, mass immigration, insecurity, laxity, anything, the inter-self of of our elites, international finance. We have to stop with all this, and so I think many are ready today to try another policy, an alternative to the policy led by Emmanuel Macron. "
In the event of another failure in 2022, Marine Le Pen, 51, said she did not know if she would have conducted her last presidential campaign. "I don't know, it will depend on what the members of my movement want," she said.
