An historic moment, a massive victory.


An historic moment, a massive victory. Far-right leader Marine Le Pen’s take on the outcome of the presidential election first round, which sees her and her National Front party go through to the run-off in two weeks’ time.

She told supporters that the country’s survival is at stake.

“You have the choice of alternatives, the real one, not the one that’s seen governments succeeding one another so that nothing changes,” she said.

“The one that I propose to you is the great alternative, the fundamental alternative which will put in place new policies, new faces and the renewal to which you aspire.”

Le Pen continued: “It’s obviously not the prolongation of Francois Hollande, and all of the failures of these five years, but it will be new changes that will come.

“It is time to free French people from the arrogant elites, who want to dictate to them. I am the candidate of the people.”
