The surprise on Friday was announced by Front National member, Louis Aliot on Twitter.
Le Pen, who came second in the presidential race last year and elected to the French parliament, had previously announced the name change, in the wake of the presidential vote.
“The National Front has become an adult. The National Front today has changed in nature. It went from a party of protest first in its youth, then from a party of opposition to a party of government,” Le Pen told French state television France2.
Le Pen urged the Front National, “to acquire the culture of alliances, acquire the culture of a government party, and changing the name is one of the ways to make it known.”
Le Pen noted however that the main thrust of the party would not change. “The defence of identity, French culture, security, the fight against immigration, and the defence of a social model, of national solidarity and especially of national sovereignty,” will remain at the forefront, she said.
In a recent speech in Zurich, Bannon recalled the Brexit victory night in the opening part of his presentation. He spoke to a sold-out arena in Zurich, Switzerland on Tuesday at an event sponsored by the Swiss newspaper Die Weltwoche.
It was his second speech in Europe in which Bannon told the audience that nationalist movements and cryptocurrencies were a positive development. “Central banks are in the business of debasing your currency. Central governments are in the business of debasing your citizenship. The central technology conglomerates are in the business of debasing your own personal sovereignty and your own personal data.”
Bannon touted the liberating potential of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. He said the new technology had financial as well as nonfinancial applications, such as managing personal data.
“We take control of the central banks away. That will give us the power again…Once you take control of your currency, once you take control of your data, once you take control of your citizenship, that’s when you’re going to have true freedom.”
During his lecture, part of his European speaking tour, he described cryptocurrency and blockchain technology as the “very heart” of a nationalist movement in Switzerland.
