Everything about Marine Le Pen, favorite for the president of France: She claims that Kosovo is Serbian, she supports Puttin and she is a thorn in the eye of Europe!
The party led by her father had just over 4% of the support, and in just five years, she managed to get over 27% of the people's support and to make her party the strongest in France in 2015
The campaign for presidential elections in France is slowly coming to an end, and citizens will have the opportunity to chose new president of their republic on Sunday. Recent surveys have shown that only four candidates are in the count, and only one of them is the member of the two leading parties in France. Definitely the most radical among them with her politics and sharp attitude is Marine Le Pen, leader of the National Front, known as the far-right party. She is not stopping in shocking the Europe and the world, and her popularity has been growing from one year to another, and the best was in 2014 when her party had 27% of the support.
Marion Anne Perrine Le Pen was born in 1968 in the well known family as a youngest of three daughters, her father is famous French politician and the founder of National Front, Jean-Marie Le Pen.
Her father is against European Union, and he was for limiting the immigration into France, higher investments into defense, censorship of culture, introduction of the death penalty and skepticism. He was charged and convicted six times of xenophobia and anti-Semitism. What few people know in Serbia is that Le Pen is an honorary citizen of Zemun.
Her family survived a bomb attack when a bomb exploded on the stairway in front of their apartment in 1976.
She graduated in 1992 and worked as a lawyer until 1998. She was married and divorced twice and has three children. She has been in relationship with Lewis Aliout since 2009, National Front politician.
She began doing politics since 1998 in her father's party. The same year she became a member of the regional parliament in the middle county Ile-de-France, and from 2004 she is a member of the European parliament.
Since 2003 she becomes a member of the party presidency. She managed to win on party elections and to become a president of National Front in 2011.
The party led by her father had just over 4% of the support, and in just five years, she managed to get over 27% of the people's support and to make her party the strongest in France in 2015.
Marine Le Pen was clear of her father's excessively radical views of his father in order to get more support from the electorate, and since 2015 she has been in a public argument against her father. Then she took drastic measures and suspended his membership in the party.
- I don't think he should speak in the name of National Front anymore - said Marin Le Pen on the French television iTele.
She was a candidate on the 2012 elections when she got 17.90 percent of the votes. Between 2011 and 2015, TIME magazine included her in the list of 100 most influential people.
She is considered to be one of the strongest candidates on these presidential elections. The research show that she will win the most votes in the first round, but that she could lose in the second. That is the possibility if her opponent is Emmanuel Macron, a more centrist-oriented.
Even though they say she made National Front more open and liberal compared to the period when her father was a president, her attitudes are still to radical for many.
She loosened the attitudes about accepting the same sex marriages in France, she accepts abortion and she rejects the death penalty from her party's platform.
However, the opinion about EU, illegal migration and NATO remained the same. She publicly said that if she wins on these elections, she will put France on her top priority and that she will personally decide about foreign policy, independently from NATO and EU.
She is known that she is not afraid to publicly condemn the politics of EU and USA for mistakes on Middle East, as well as their attitude towards Russia. She advocates for France to exit NATO saying that National Front has been against joining this organization from the day one.
She openly supports the politics of the Russian president Vladimir Putin, and she recently had the opportunity to visit him in Moscow and to talk with him.
- Yes, i admire Vladimir Putin, his composure in the conditions when EU imposes a new cold war. Besides that, president Putin returned the feeling of price to once great nation which was humiliated for years. I extremely respect his economic patriotism - said the leader of the strongest France far-right party.
She sharply criticizes the way her country is fighting the illegal migrants saying that the government is not investing enough effort to solve this question and this is becoming constant passivity regarding this question and subordination of EU opinions. She even wrote an open letter where she publicly declared her opinions.
On one of her rallies in Paris she turned to our country and she said that Kosovo is "Serbian Holy and Christian land which is the last barrier of creating a new Islamic state in Europe".
- Great injustice was done towards Serbs during nineties and Europe is obliged to rectify this injustice - said Le Pen.
She has been actively working on lobbying for Serbian interests when it comes to Kosovo and Metohija, but also for Republika Srpska and Republika Srpska Krajina, and thus she gained a huge respect from the Serbian people in Serbia and abroad, reports agencies.
France is divided when it comes to her, there are protests in the country against her, where people say that the basis of freedom will be gone if she wins. Even some political leaders call not to vote for her, because in that case, France could be the next country that could start the exit process from the EU.
