Marine Le Pen makes a rallying cry for eurosceptics, forecasting the EU superstate’s destruction.
MARINE LE PEN has issued a eurosceptic rallying cry in an exclusive interview with This website, claiming that the EU’s supranational vision is on its way out.
After losing to Emmanuel Macron in the 2017 election, Ms Le Pen, the leader of the National Rally (NR), is preparing a third presidential run next spring. In an exclusive interview with This website, the right-wing leader spoke at length about her vision for France and the EU if she wins the battle for the Elysee Palace. Ms. Le Pen, who earlier supported for France’s secession from the European Union, now wants to reform the EU from within.
According to the NR leader, the EU’s supranational objective will be abandoned soon.
“As you can see, things have drastically changed today,” she explained.
“A large number of countries share our aim to end the European Union’s supranational and federal agenda.
“Wisdom and reason urge us to return to a vision of European collaboration that strengthens rather than divides states through freely chosen and approved policies of cooperation in critical industries such as research, innovation, and artificial intelligence…
“Until now, European architecture has been built on the disintegration of European states, stripping them of their sovereignty and power.
“Supporting the protection of people’s interests must be the first step in the reversal process.”
She went on to say, “We are no longer the only ones in Europe advocating a comprehensive reform of European institutions.”
“We have clearly lost possible British support in this effort as a result of Brexit, but many European countries, notably those in the Visegrad group, prefer a national perspective.
“We’ve also just signed a joint declaration with 15 European parties, including Hungary’s and Poland’s ruling parties, defining a collective approach that foreshadows concerted attempts to maintain or restore state sovereignty in the EU’s functioning.”
The statement was signed by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s Fidesz, Poland’s ruling Law and Justice, Austria’s Freedom Party, Spain’s Vox, and Italy’s League and Brothers of Italy, led by Matteo Salvini and Giorgia Meloni.
The signatories come from a variety of political families that have previously struggled to work together, and some assumed that it was the first step toward forming a coalition. “Brinkwire News in a Nutshell.”
