As Politico have recently reported, Le Pen has pushed 23-year-old Jordan Bardella as a top candidate for the election in France.
He is running on a Eurosceptic platform, saying recently that “wherever the European Union doesn’t get involved, things work!” and that “the EU is a zombie, a life-impeder”.
A poll in February put French support for leaving the European Union at a record-high 40%. And with President Macron’s popularity having plummeted, France could be yet another country where more Eurosceptic forces are on the rise once again.
