French poll: Front runner asks EU to reform

Marine le Pen and Emmanuel Macron

The front-runner in the French presidential election has asked the EU to reform or face the prospect of “Frexit”.

Mr Macron added that if he were to allow the EU to continue to function as it was would be a “betrayal”.

He said, ‘I’m a pro-European, I defended constantly during this election the European idea and European policies because I believe it’s extremely important for French people and for the place of our country in globalisation.

‘But at the same time we have to face the situation, to listen to our people, and to listen to the fact that they are extremely angry today, impatient and the dysfunction of the EU is no more sustainable.

‘So I do consider that my mandate, the day after, will be at the same time to reform in depth the European Union and our European project.’

Pro-EU centrist Emmanuel Macron made the comments as he and his far-right rival Marine Le Pen entered the last week of campaigning.

Both Mr Macron – who is leading in the polls by 20 percentage points – and Ms Le Pen spent Sunday campaigning around France.
