French far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has attacked her electoral rivals’ policies and accused the media of favoring her opponents.
Addressing her supporters in Nantes, Le Pen also accused centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron of being backed by banks and media groups who are campaigning hysterically for their darling. She claimed that the justice system was being used to influence the outcome of the election. Opinion polls show Le Pen lead in the first round of voting followed by Macron who is closing the gap on her. The polls say Le Pen would lose to Macron in the run-off vote. Both Le Pen and the Republicans’ candidate Francois Fillon are facing allegations of misusing public money.
