Le Pen as president would seek French electoral law change - aide

A new kind of political poll using the text analytics software platform OdinText to analyze unaided comments from French citizens instead of relying on conventional multiple-choice questions has determined that Marine Le Pen is positioned for an upset victory in the May 7th runoff election for the French presidency similar to Donald Trump's victory in the US presidential election.

At a free concert Tuesday at the Paris Philharmonic, prominent cultural figures urged support for centrist Emmanuel Macron instead. The consensus view is that Marine Le Pen just CANNOT Win, as the odds are heavily stacked against her with the polls giving Macron a healthy lead of 60% against Le Pen trailing heavily behind on 40%, that's a 20% gap!

Philharmonic director Laurent Bayle said: "We who want to keep living in societies based on differences, we need step up the effort through this week and call a maximum of people to spread our message of friendship". "We need to stand together to defend, liberty, equality and brotherhood".

"It shows that Marine Le Pen is not sectarian", Bay explained, "and that when one of her opponents, in this case from the first round, speaks well about France, she can borrow his comments".

The far-right hopeful added that her party and Fillon's voters share "the same vision of France, of its greatness, of the role it should have in the world".

Macron made his remarks at a Paris rally on Monday ahead of the Sunday runoff between himself and populist Marine Le Pen. "We know that those attracted by the extremists aren't extremists themselves". These are the regimes of Orban, Kaczynski and Putin.

Jaroslaw Kaczynski is the chairman of Poland's ruling conservative Law and Justice party and the country's most powerful politician.

And we're not great at that. "I'm going to frequent-fly quite a bit", Seacrest said on the show as official co-host. Actor Chris Pratt was the first guest, and he carried balloons and roses onstage to give to the new broadcast team.

"I'm anxious like many French".

Official government figures show more people made a decision to abstain from voting in the April 23 first round of the French presidential election than voted for any single candidate - including Macron and National Front's Le Pen.

Le Pen said Sunday that a new franc would be introduced for daily use while the euro would be retained for "large companies that trade internationally".

Both Poland and Hungary have been strongly criticized by the European Union and worldwide human rights organizations for consolidating power in a way that has eroded the independence of the courts, the media, and other institutions. France Unbowed announced the results of an internet survey on Tuesday showing that 36 per cent of supporters will vote blank or null, while 35 per cent will vote for Macron and 29 per cent will abstain.

French centrist presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron is promising an ethics bill that will block office-holders from conflicts of interest, nepotism and other ethical issues that have infuriated voters.

Macron warned he would not pull his punches against a rival whose policies - primarily the anti-euro strategy and a nativist anti-immigrant policy on jobs and welfare - he says are risky for France. She has held elected office several times in northern France and has been a European lawmaker since 2004.

The final face-to-face debate between rivals in a French presidential election, aired live, is a "must-watch" event across the country, when the candidates take the gloves off to land whatever punches they can.
