France’s right-wing presidential hopeful Marine Le Pen outlined her policy in a manifesto comprising 144 proposals, including plans to restore French sovereignty by leaving the Eurozone and restoring border controls through multiple institutional reforms.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Marine Le Pen is set to face independent candidate Emmanuel Macron in the run-off on Sunday after coming second in the first round.

“To restore order in France in five years. That is the commitment, which I make,” Le Pen said in the policy outline.</strong>

The proposals of the right-wing candidate are divided into seven blocs, dubbed free France, confident France, prosperous France, just France, proud France, powerful France and durable France.

Frexit, National Identity

Le Pen seeks a “return to France national sovereignty” and to create “a Europe of independent nations.” To achieve this goal Le Pen intends to start talks with EU partners on changing France’s membership, or otherwise, to hold a referendum for the country’s withdrawal from the union. Le Pen also has vowed to resign in case the French nationals vote against Frexit.

The right-wing nominee calls for restoring the national border and leaving the Schengen zone, as well as returning passport checks to the French borders of other EU states. Keeping to the framework of her protectionist policy, she also suggests re-introducing a national currency.
