French far right is at the ‘gates of power’, PM Valls warns
September 07 2014 — France 24
France’s far-right National Front is at the “gates of power”, Prime Minister Manuel Valls (Photo I) warned on Sunday, after a recent poll showed FN leader Marine Le Pen would beat Socialist President François Hollande in a 2017 presidential vote.
The French premier was speaking to fellow social democrats from across Europe at the annual National Unity Festival (Festa nazionale de l’Unita) in the Italian city of Bologna.
"In France, the extreme right of Marine Le Pen (Photo: II) is at the gates of power,” Valls said. “And I, as a man of the left, will never be able to resign myself to that because it will be the weakest who will be the first to suffer. And it will also be a terrible, perhaps fatal, blow to Europe.”
Although the poll released Friday predicted that Le Pen would beat Hollande in the event of a second round run-off between them, other surveys suggest that she would lose if facing former president Nicolas Sarkozy or another candidate from the centre right.
A high-profile disagreement over France’s economic policy triggered a crisis within the Socialist Party in recent weeks and forced a surprise cabinet re-shuffle. In a possible warning to the left-wing rebels inside his own party, the more centrist Valls said the European left had to change its approach if it wanted to succeed.
"We have to act differently. We have to speak differently," the Spanish-born premier said. "In order to be listened to and to be heard … We know what will be the terrible price of failure."
Valls has long been the most popular Socialist politician in France, but his chances of winning the battle within his party may have been fatally compromised by the bad blood caused by the current crisis, some analysts say.
"When Marine Le Pen is forecast to get 32 percent in the first round of a presidential vote and even win in the second, is that what we need?" he asked.
"Or do we need to put the country back on its feet?"
Dissident elements in the Socialist party are opposed to Valls’ proposal to cut €50 billion in state spending by 2017 and use some of the savings to reduce corporate payroll taxes in a bid to tackle France’s record unemployment.
The tensions in the party could come to a head on September 16, when the Valls government faces a confidence vote in parliament that could — if enough left-wingers side with the right — force the dissolution of parliament.
"Everyone has to step up and accept responsiblity for avoiding an institutional crisis," Valls said.
President Hollande, meanwhile, is facing his own political calamity, with an opinion poll published Friday putting his approval rating at a new record low of 13 percent.
Hollande’s woes were compounded by the publication last week of a memoir by his former partner, Valérie Trierweiler, with whom he split soon after a tabloid revealed he was having an affair with actress Julie Gayet.
Hollande has since hit back at Trierweiler’s claims that he is contemptuous of the poor and had referred to them as “toothless”.
Speaking to reporters after a NATO summit wrapped up in Wales, Hollande said that he was “at the service of the poorest” and that serving them was his “raison d’être”.
