Marion Maréchal-Le Pen quits Front National
Marion Maréchal-Le Pen, the niece of Marine Le Pen has announced that she will not stand for reelection to the French parliament, Le Figaro reported on Tuesday.

She is one of only two National Front MPs in the lower house of parliament, but during the campaign trail, Marine had ruled out a cabinet position for Marion in her government if she had won.
Marion was kept in the background during the presidential race, arguably because of her ties to Identitarians.
She was however considering leaving politics. “I won’t be in politics for my whole life,” she told POLITICO in April. “It’s certain that at some point I will go off and do something different.”
Maréchal-Le Pen will also be quiting as councillor in the Provences-Alpes-Côte d’Azur regional council, a major blow for the National Front as it will deprive the party of a popular leader in southern France.
Following Marine’s defeat in the presidential election on Sunday, the Front National was counting on Maréchal-Le Pen to take seats during the legislative elections to be held in June.
Marine Le Pen has been informed of her niece’s decision, Le Monde reported.
“She had been telling me about this for a while,” an MP from southern France told the newspaper. “But if she wants to do this, now is the time.”
Le Parisien reported that Marion had made a “personal choice” to quit the political scene. “I respect her choice. I know how demanding political life can be,” the Marine said her niece’s decision was made.
The granddaughter of FN founder Jean-Marie Le Pen, Maréchal-Le Pen, 27, had been touted as a future leader of the party.
According to Le Figaro, she now wishes to spend more time with her young daughter.
In Sunday’s election, the party nearly doubled the share of votes from 2002, when then-leader Jean-Marie Le Pen ran against Jacques Chirac.
Analysis of the results in three polling stations with an atypical profile in the Paris region confirms that the gendarmes as well as their families, voted for Marine Le Pen.
In Versailles, Marine polled 64.61 percent and 53.34 percent respectively at two voting stations in the Satory plateau.
Emmanuel Macron only won 35.39 percent and 46.66 percent in the same constituency. These are the only voting stations in Versailles that did not put Macron ahead.
Abstention was also slightly higher on the Satory plateau than in the rest of Versailles, according to French daily L’Opinion. The only people living on the Satory plateau are gendarmes, military personnel and civilians working in the defence industry who benefit from social housing.
The same observation is true in Nanterre, with voting station 14 which corresponds to the Republican Guard barracks. Marine Le Pen won well over half of the votes. The contrast with the rest of the city is also striking here: Macron gained 83.15 percent and Le Pen only 16.85 percent.
The Cevipof polls by Sciences Po regularly indicate that the FN gets around half of the vote from members of the military, gendarmes and police.
Of Macron’s voters, nearly half (43 percent) said they voted against Le Pen, not for Macron, and twelve percent of the electorate cast blank or spoiled ballots to express their opposition.
Israelis eligible to vote in the second round of France’s presidential elections had opted overwhelmingly for the winner, Emmanuel Macron, France’s ambassador to Israel said on Monday. In a post on her Twitter account, Helene Le Gal said that Macron received 96.3 percent of votes in Israel.
Macron’s transition team began outlining his globalist agenda on Tuesday, which expands upon that of the Socialist Party (PS) government of outgoing President François Hollande in which Macron was a minister.
Insiders expect he will continue the wars in Syria, Iraq and Mali, as the figures Macron is considering as potential prime ministers, include globalist Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund and Jean-Yves Le Drian, the Socialist Party government’s defense minister, who had worked closely with the unpopular Hollande.
In the absence of a clear parliamentary majority, Macron’s administration will struggle to pass legislation, as none of the established parties have anything to propose to French voters who are feeling the noxious effects of globalisation and immigration.
