Marine Le Pen and her main lieutenants declared their opposition to JMLP running during the regional elections in December (he was expected to be the FN frontrunner in the PACA region). As the article says, we will now this month who they choose as candidates. They would also like to expel him from the party, but it's unclear whether it's possible under the party's status.

Meanwhile, the UMP officially voted for the dates (20 and 27 december 2016) and the form of their primary election (discussed above). Moreover, it has been confirmed that from May 30th we should not talk about the UMP anymore, but about "Les Républicains".

Main reason is that Sarkozy needs a fresh image. He is betting that people will trust him when he says that he is a different man. So it's a new party of a "new man".

Of course they are trying to monopolize the role of "defenders of the Republic", which pisses off every one else.

Should be noted that internally, the new name isn't unanimously welcomed, like at all. I know from UMP members (that I only know from a French political forum, I promptly reassure you Wink) that the odds are rather for keeping UMP than changing to "Les Républicains". Wait and see.

That's the most blatant attempt of electioneering I've seen in years.  Marine "Panzergirl" Le Pen, is making us American politicos proud with her pretending that she, and her National Front don't believe this anti-semetic, protectionist, and xenophobic garbage that Jean Marie "Panzerdaddy" Le Pen has spewed out over the years. It's straight out of Karl Rove's playbook, and it must be thwarted.

Jean-Marie Le Pen called the FN’s decision “felony” on Monday. “I don’t acknowledge any link with someone who betrays me in such a scandalous manner,” Mr Le Pen told Europe 1 radio station. “I am ashamed that the president of the National Front bears my name and I want her to lose it as soon as possible.” He suggested she marry Louis Aliot, 45, or Florian Philippot, 33, two of the vice-presidents of the party.

That's hardcore trolling from him.

Especially the part about marrying Aliot or Philippot.

Aliot is already her partner since 2009, while Philippot is gay. Let's consider FN has five vice-president, why naming only those two?

The republicanism in this thread is disgusting.

We don't know how many cars this family has, only that they consume 1/4 of a $60k car per year.

It's a funny thing that quite a large number of French people judge Hollande positively on the wars in Mali or Centrafrica, on its reaction to the terrorist attacks or during the decisive talks of this week, but still despise anyway because he looks bad on pictures.

No, the reason is that nobody in France cares about foreign policy.

Hollande reiterates that if the jobs numbers don't improve next year, he won't run for reelection. Believe when seen. Wonder if a president will ever leave office popular.

Not only has saved our collective ass but he successfully recruited Renzi to form an alliance against Germany's increasing hegemony of the EU.
A France-Italy axis might be necessary if hardliners like Schauble continue to aggressively push for the transformation of the Eurozone into a permanent austerity neo-liberal paradise.
