Le Pen lurches back to far right as race tightens

20 April 2017, 04:39 | Myron Mathis

As well as pushing his proposed programme of spending increases and renegotiations of European Union treaties, Mélenchon and his six holograms expressed solidarity with his rivals, following arrests of two suspects who had allegedly been preparing a terror attack in France.

Conservative candidate François Fillon is also vying for a place in the next round, with a recent poll suggesting a very tight split in votes between the four candidates.

While national security previously has been a strong theme in the campaign, far-right candidate Marine Le Pen hardened her tone on foreign extremists and border controls in the wake of the arrests that came days before the first round of voting.

For his last major rally before Sunday's nail-biting first-round vote, the resurgent leftwinger killed seven birds with one stone by transmitting his onstage appearance in Dijon to crowds in Nancy, Grenoble, Montpellier, Clermont-Ferrand, Nantes and Le Port on the Indian Ocean island of Reunion.

PARIS (AP) - Belgium's federal prosecutor says the country had opened an investigation into one of the suspects arrested for plotting an attack that officials say was thwarted days before the French presidential election.

Le Pen has in the past expressed hope that the anti-system momentum would rub off on her.

"They wanted to stay quiet about this problem, to suppress it, to keep it at a distance like one sweeps dust under the carpet", she said yesterday.


Socialist candidate Benoit Hamon promised that if he won France's presidency he would give asylum to Edward Snowden, the former U.S. National Security Agency contractor who has taken refuge in Moscow since revealing details of secret U.S. government eavesdropping programs in 2013.

On Wednesday, she repeated that she would slash immigration, make it harder to obtain French nationality and crack down on suspected Islamists.

Macron met with the head of leading French Muslim group CFCM, Anouar Kbibech.

He said at this stage investigators have not determined "the day, the targets and the exact circumstances" of a potential attack. Some Muslims feel unfairly targeted by French laws banning headscarves in schools and full-face veils in public.

"Terrorist acts have multiplied throughout Europe during the campaign", she said.
