France's Le Pen holds last campaign rally before EU election
NO REPORTER NARRATION.
With one final push before the EU parliamentary elections, France's far-right leader Marine Le Pen held a rally on Friday night (May 24) to call on voters to block French President Emmanuel Macron's government and policies.
The leader of the National Rally party spoke alongside the head of the party's list for the election Jordan Bardella in front of thousands of supporters gathered at Le Pen's home ground of Henin-Beaumont.
Support in France has risen for both Marine Le Pen's far-right party and President Emmanuel Macron's candidates three days before voting in the European parliament elections, an opinion poll showed on Thursday (May 23).
Macron, who has been campaigning in recent days, has framed the elections as a battle between anti-immigration nationalists and pro-European "progressives" such as himself.
Bardella said during the rally "mass immigration is not only an unaffordable cost for the community it is also the cause of insecurity and disorder".
