French presidential front-runner Emmanuel Macron has taunted far-right leader Marine Le pen by paying tribute to a Moroccan man drowned by skinheads after a National Front rally in 1995. he

He promised a "zero tolerance" policy in the fight against terrorism.

The "dysfunctional" European Union requires some in depth reform, or France could head for the door, French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron said a week before the second election round.

Speaking in a Paris hall on Monday, Macron criticized Le Pen's "rude manners" and called her "the heir" to her father's politics. She expelled him from the party in 2015 after he reiterated anti-Semitic comments. If those European Union negotiations failed, she would submit the euro question to the French people via referendum. "A matter of crucial importance for civilisation will be decided", she told the same Sunday night news bulletin, in a separate interview broadcast by the France 2 channel.

"It's an historic day because we are putting France before personal and partisan interests", said Dupont-Aignan, whose backing for Le Pen sparked the resignation of several Debout la France officials.

A May Day march attended by thousands of people in Paris was disrupted as scores of hooded youths threw gasoline bombs at riot police in full gear, who responded with tear gas and truncheons.

Independent centrist presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron makes a sign to bystanders as he leaves the Holocaust memorial in Paris, France, Sunday, April 30, 2017.

The two face a presidential runoff May 7 that will reverberate across Europe.

Le Pen has been seeking to de-demonize the National Front, by drawing in more young people and women.

In July 1995, French President Jacques Chirac apologized for the action and admitted the responsibility of the French state, contradicting a previous official line according to which the authorities based in Vichy, France during WWII did not represent the true country.

So far, Cody has been slightly struggling with the transition, but Emma has had an easier time bouncing back. "She loves cheese. In it, the couple tearfully apologizes for making " terrible parenting decisions", and says they are in family counseling.

Le Pen on Saturday said ditching the euro was not her top economic priority, in a bid to broaden her support amid voters anxious over her trademark policy, ahead of the presidential election run-off May 7 vote against centrist front-runner Emmanuel Macron.

She received the second-most votes in France's presidential election last month and finds herself in a runoff against center-right candidate Emanuel Macron.

To some extent, Le Pen resembles Trump's intentions to build a wall between Mexico and the USA, reduce travel and immigration from certain countries and leave global agreements such as NAFTA.

Le Pen, on the other hand, promotes a protectionist economy, secularism, and the closing of French borders for additional immigration.

Meanwhile, Jean-Marie Le Pen, the candidate's more radical father, will lead his own rally in Paris, leading a march from the statue of the legendary French heroine and FN nationalist icon Joan of Arc to the Paris Opera house.

He said: "She is not Joan of Arc but she accepts the same mission".

A former economy minister who made his millions as an investment banker, Macron has been attacked from both the left and the right for his perceived arrogance.

He denounced Macron as a "masked Socialist" backed by the highly unpopular Socialist president Francois Hollande.
