VICTORY for Marine Le Pen in the upcoming French presidential election would be a fatal body blow for the European Union, former Spanish prime minister José Maria Aznar.

The leader of France’s hard-right Front National political party is currently tipped to win the first round of next month’s crucial vote but rival Emmanuel Macron is currently favourite to take the final victory.

However, Mr Aznar told the conservative French daily Le Figaro: “I am extremely worried about the results of the upcoming election.

“Polls are pointing towards a Le Pen victory and predict that all left- and right-wing candidates – pillars of the French political scene – will be eliminated in the first round of voting.”

The centre-right politician added that French voters’ flirtation with the anti-EU extreme-right was – like Brexit – a symptom of a “wider political crisis”.

He said: “A Le Pen win is a real possibility. If the Front National is voted into power, France will leave the eurozone and the European Union.

“Because if the French vote in favour of leaving the Brussels bloc via a Frexit referendum, the EU – which has already been weakened by the Brexit vote – will collapse.”

The former head of state added that Britain’s shock decision to withdraw from the EU had plunged the soon-to-be 27-member bloc into an “existential crisis”.
