Le Pen voices remarks on ousting Macron

(MENAFN) Marine Le Pen, leader of the National Rally (NR) faction in the French parliament, has stated that she will not seek the immediate removal of President Emmanuel macron from office if her party wins the upcoming general election. This announcement follows a significant victory for the NR in the recent European Union parliamentary elections, which led Macron to call a snap election.

In an interview with Le Figaro published on Sunday, Le Pen emphasized her respect for institutional processes and rejected the notion of causing "institutional chaos" by demanding Macron's resignation. Instead, she spoke of the likelihood of a "cohabitation" government, where the executive and legislative branches are controlled by different parties.

Despite her refusal to push for Macron's resignation, Le Pen harshly criticized his administration. She accused Macron of leaving France "in ruins," citing the deterioration of public services and uncontrolled immigration. Furthermore, Le Pen argued that while France's political system, established by General Charles de Gaulle, remains intact, Macron has created conditions that obstruct the democratic functioning of the country.

Le Pen positioned the National Rally as a party of "order and tranquility," contrasting it with Macron’s leadership. She expressed her aspiration to serve as "president of the majority group of a cohabitation government," indicating her readiness to lead under the current constitutional framework without instigating a political crisis.

These comments reflect Le Pen’s strategic approach to positioning herself and her party as a stabilizing force in French politics, while simultaneously highlighting her criticisms of Macron’s tenure and policies.
