>> Many more voters have come waving French flags and cheering in support of the National Front's Marine Le Pen in her bid for the presidency, with the latest polls predicting she's gaining ground on presidential front runner Emmanuel Macron. Clawing back about five percentage points over the past week to hold 39% of the votes against her rival's 61%.
On Monday, she promised a different France if elected President next Sunday. Our government will not be the government of continuity, but of change. Our government will not be the government of ambitions, but of beliefs. Our government will not be the government of words, but of action. Although she's tried to distance herself from her father, founder of the National Front's Jean-Marie Le Pen's image.
On Monday, while paying tribute to Joan of Arc, he said his daughter is the daughter of France, and has a similar mission to the heroine in fighting for the country. He also slammed Emmanuel Macron.
> Meanwhile, at the same time, and a few hundred meters away from Le Pen, Macron was paying tribute to a young Moroccan man, who drowned in the Seine 22 years ago after being pushed into the river by Skinheads on the fringes of the National Front's traditional May Day Rally.
He talks to us about workers, but he's a former Rothschild banker. He wants to boost the economy, but he's part of those who blew it up. How could he and his accomplices act tomorrow with what they were not able nor wanted to do yesterday? This lazy elitist created and promoted by the media cannot be France's head of state.
It's the latest attempt by Macron, a pro-Europe centrist, to remind voters of what he and other critics see as the National Front's racist and anti-Semitic legacy.
