    Le Pen, of the nationalist National Front (FN), chose Dupont-Aignan, also a nationalist from the party “Stand Up France” in a bid to widen her appeal.

    The charismatic Dupont-Aignan had already backed Marine for the second round. Le Pen faces leftist globalist Emmanuel Macron in the second, decisive round of voting, which takes place on 7 May.

    Dupont-Aignan, won 4,7 percent in the first round, on a platform of leaving the euro and scrapping the European Union, higher ethical standards for elected officials, and focusing on the fight against jihadist terrorism.

    He also said it was time to stop treating Le Pen as untouchable. The biased mainstream news outlets in France as well as in Anglo-American spheres, describe Le Pen constantly as an “extremist” from the “far-right” while calling the feeble Macron a “centrist”.

    French mainstream journalists almost all hail from one educational institution, known as “Science Po” in Paris, a leftist, globalist institution with questionable education standards.

    Le Pen’s new partner left the UMP after the Lisbon Treaty of 2007, denouncing the violation of the 2005 European referendum. He was voted parlementarian of year after his report on fiscal evasion in 2013.

    “We will form a government of national unity that brings together people chosen for their competence and their love of France,” she said at a Paris news conference announcing their partnership.

    Dupont-Aignan has expressed some differences with the Le Pen on the reintroduction of the death penalty.

    Polls on Friday showed the candidate with no party, Macron slipping against Le Pen in voter surveys since the start of the week.

    On Friday, the National Front was charged once again with “Holocaust denial” after one of its senior officials was forced to step aside to defend himself from allegations, resurfacing after more than a decade, that he had agreed with comments from a professor who had been convicted of “incitement to racial hatred”.
