How has Marine Le Pen changed since she lost the 2017 presidential election?

Elections in France: this is how the first round turned out 0:36 Paris (CNN) – For the presidential second round in France, Emmanuel Macron will once again face Marine Le Pen. This is the second consecutive election in which they measure their forces. But the woman who challenges the current president is not the same candidate who lost by almost two votes to one in 2017. Now Le Pen, 53, is part of the French National Assembly representing Calais, the city in which coast near the UK that has had a hard time dealing with migrants heading to Britain. The family legacy that Marine Le Pen received She is best known as a member of the first French family of the extreme right. Her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, founded the National Front in 1972, a political party long considered racist and anti-Semitic. When the young Le Pen took over as party leader in 2011, she tried to change the name from Front National to something more popular. To the point that she even expelled her father from the political party he had founded after he repeated his claim that the Nazi gas chambers had been nothing more than a detail of history. However, Le Pen shares her father’s views on immigration. In her failed campaign against Macron, she tried to position herself as a sort of Donald Trump in France, claiming to represent the forgotten French working classes who have suffered in the wake of globalization and technological progress. “Stop uncontrolled immigration” But his economic nationalist stance, his views on immigration, Euroscepticism and his positions on Islam in France –– he wants to make it illegal for women to wear the veil in public –– proved unpopular with the French electorate. Which resulted in her defeat during the first contest against Macron. While “stopping uncontrolled immigration” and “eradicating Islamist ideologies” remain the top two priorities on her platform, Le Pen has sought to broaden her appeal. In the weeks leading up to the first round of elections, Le Pen campaigned intensely on personal finance issues. She often began her interviews and media appearances by explaining to voters how she would help them deal with inflation and rising fuel prices, issues that are very important to the French public. The strategy seems to have worked. Le Pen had better results in the first round of 2022 than five years ago. And polling by the Ifop pollster suggested that a second round between Macron and Le Pen could be between 53% and 47% in favor of the president. The challenges facing Marine Le Pen But some of Le Pen’s other political positions could affect her in the second round due to the war in Ukraine. She has long been an outspoken admirer of Vladimir Putin, the man who has become an outcast in the West for his decision to attack Ukraine. Le Pen visited Putin during his 2017 presidential campaign, but this time she was forced to throw away a flyer that had a photo of her and Putin from that earlier trip. Her previous aversion to NATO –– Le Pen’s campaign platform in 2017 included taking France out of the Alliance–– could also be a liability. Recent IFOP polls show that 67% of the French public do not believe the country should leave NATO. Melissa Bell and Joseph Ataman, both of CNN, contributed to this report.
