Marine Le Pen: the new face of the far-right
This Saturday, far-right leader Marine Le Pen will officially launch her presidential campaign. While her stated aim is to win next spring's election, her hope is to replicate her father's performance in 2002, when he beat all predictions and reached the run-off. To do so, his daughter has worked hard to transform the National Front into a "normal" party. So who is Marine Le Pen? Is there truly a "new" National Front?
