French campaign revs up with rival rallies, May Day marches

Mae Harvey | 07 May, 2017, 13:28

France's controversial election follows other major events like Donald Trump's victory in the United State's presidential election and the Brexit referendum. Before that Macron worked on mergers and acquisitions at Rothschild & Cie in Paris.

One person was badly injured and five others injured after a molotov cocktail was thrown. "We need to stand together to defend, liberty, equality and brotherhood".

"Is Marine Le Pen really a less unacceptable option than her father?"

However aides of Ms Le Pen attempted to brush off the criticism.

However, Le Pen's campaign manager, David Rachline, played down the accusations of plagiarism, saying the speech was a form of tribute to Fillon, which "was appreciated" by his supporters.

He was trying to resonate with a broad demographic and even told those tempted by Ms Le Pen that he would not judge them if they voted for the far-right out of desperation.

Poland's Foreign Ministry is denouncing French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron's comparison of Poland's government to the "regimes" of Russia's Vladimir Putin and Hungary's Viktor Orban.

Macron is projected to win against Le Pen during the second and final round of voting taking place on Sunday, May 7, according to BBC News's assessment of opinion polls.

Philippot said on Monday that as president, Le Pen would "of course" pull France out of the euro.

The statement thanked Haber for his "strides toward justice" and indicated that they were "grateful" that Oliver had been fired. Police initially said the vehicle reversed "aggressively" towards the officer, but footage discredits that claim.

Prince Philip stepping down from royal duties
In 1940, Prince Philip joined the Royal Navy, and served with distinction in World War II in the Mediterranean and the Pacific. His 219 engagements past year were made up of 101 official visits, 91 receptions and 21 other engagements.

Jaroslaw Kaczynski is the chairman of Poland's ruling conservative Law and Justice party and the country's most powerful politician.

Reacting to the scenes on Twitter, far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen said: "This is the sort of mess. that I no longer want to see on our streets".

Several sections of her speech on Monday in Villepinte, north of Paris, appear to repeat nearly word-for-word comments Fillon made in an address on April 15, BBC reported.

In another excerpt about prospects of cooperation with France's neighbours, where the words were again the same as in Fillon's speech, Le Pen added that this would require France not being "a vassal" of Germany.

Seeking to capitalise on those concerns, Le Pen told thousands of her supporters at a rally Monday to reject "the world of finance, of arrogance, of money as king" that she said Macron embodied.

One way for Le Pen to close the gap is to pick up some of the approximately 20 percent of voters who backed Fillon in the election's first round. "Mr Macron adopted the slogan "France Together" it would have been more honest to say 'bankers together".

Legislative elections are in June, and whoever is president will depend on lawmakers to implement an agenda.

Bourram, who supports Macron, says his father was targeted "because he was a foreigner, an Arab".
