Jean Marie Le Pen to Marion Maréchal-Le Pen: “Leaving Front National now it’s a desertion!”

If there is no very serious reason to this decision I consider that this is a desertion. I hope she can still go back on her decision,” former leader of Front National Jean Marie Le Pen commented to Le Figaro the decision of Marion Maréchal-Le Pen to quit politics.

Ms Maréchal-Le Pen, 27, was quoted by Le Parisien as saying she had made a “personal choice” to quit the political scene.
