Marine Le Pen openly ‘opposes’ father Jean-Marie in major Front National rift
French far-right leader Marine Le Pen openly ‘opposes’ father Jean-Marie, stating his controversial comments – including over Nazi gas chambers – are ‘political suicide’
Marine Le Pen has declared open war on her firebrand father, Jean-Marie, sayingshe will block the far-Right Front National founder’s bid to run a French region after he praised the country’s collaborationist wartime leader Marshal Philippe Pétain.
Ms Le Pen faced calls to expel the 86 year-old as FN honorary president after he voiced support for Pétain, stood by claims that the Nazi gas chambers were a “detail” of history and accused Manuel Valls, France’s Spanish-born prime minister, of being an arriviste “immigrant” unfit to run the government.
Furious with Mr Le Pen’s latest incendiary outburst, his daughter declared in a statement that she would oppose his candidacy in December elections to lead the southeastern Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region.
She said his “scorched earth strategy” of causing maximum public outrage amounted to “political suicide”.
