France’s Le Pen vows ‘Frexit’ if elected president
French National Front Party Leader Marine Le Pen has vowed to hold a referendum on France remaining in the EU if she becomes president in the 2017 elections.
"This referendum on France belonging to the European Union, I will do it. Yes it is possible to change things. Look at the Brits, they chose their destiny, they chose independence ... We can again be a free, proud and independent people," she said on Saturday speech given in France’s northeastern town of Brachay.
Around 700 supporters had gathered for her speech, chanting “Marine, President" and waving French flags.
