Frexit May Be On Card After Brexit Following French Presidential Election

FREXIT – The European Union need to reform or else to face walking out of France from the bloc, said French presidential election front-runner.

The country will go to poll on Sunday to decide between Pro-EU centrist Emmanuel Macron and his far-right rival Marine Le Pen, who has capitalized on anti-EU feeling and promised earlier for a referendum on France’s membership to the bloc.

Le Pen won support of rural and former industrial areas as she has promised to be retaking control of the borders from slash immigration and also other European Union countries.

Leader of En Marchel party, Macron, recently said he is a pro-European and has regularly defended the European policies and European idea as he believes those to be important for their citizens and also in the positioning of France on global platform.

However, Macron also added that he will be listening to the people and to listen the facts of their anger.

He continued, “So I do consider that my mandate, the day after, will be at the same time to reform in depth the European Union and our European project.”

Macron is currently leading the elections by 20 percentage points.

Sunday was France’s national day of remembrance for the French Jews who were deported during the WWII to Nazi’s death camps in Germany.

Le Pen had earlier talked on different note saying the country was not responsible for those 13,000 Jews. The comment was unwelcomed even though she had worked hard in distancing her party from anti-Semitic roots.
