Le Pen says voters must choose 'for or against' France

Le Pen says voters must choose 'for or against' FranceFar-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen delivered a ferocious attack Thursday on her globalist rival Emmanuel Macron, saying voters faced a choice “for or against France”. The candidates’ starkly differing visions on France’s future are at the heart of the May 7 election run-off — with Macron, a 39-year-old former banker embracing free trade and the EU, while Le Pen wants to seal France’s borders and quit the euro. “The country Mr Macron wants is no longer France, it’s a space, a wasteland, a trading room where there are only consumers and producers,” Le Pen told a cheering crowd of some 4,000 supporters in the Riviera city of Nice, a rightwing stronghold.
