Marine Le Pen to reveal new name for National Front

Turkey court orders release of two more journalists in newspaper trial

Le Pen past year made it to the run-off in the French presidential election which she then lost to Emmanuel Macron, whose policies she said were "putting down the middle and lower classes". You argue for your freedom and they call you a xenophobe.

Further humiliation is in store for the 89-year-old Jean-Marie Le Pen when the party votes to strip him of his role as honorary president, severing his last formal link to the movement he co-founded and led for almost four decades.

In Milan after meeting members of Italy's nationalist Five Star Movement, he told the New York Times that "All I'm trying to be is the infrastructure, globally, for the global populist movement" and is considering options for re-entering the global media market after being pushed out of Breitbart.

The party canvassed 51,000 members previous year about the name change proposal and on Saturday it emerged that just 52 percent had voted in favour among the 30,000 who responded.

Le Pen defended inviting Bannon, saying party members should listen to "the architect of Donald Trump's victory" in 2016.

In France, some warned that Bannon's support could damage Le Pen's efforts to cleanse the National Front of the racist stigma that has long clung to the party's image.

Le Pen, the only candidate for National Front president, says the changes amount to a "cultural revolution" so the reshaped party can "implant itself, create alliances and govern". Let them call you nativists.

"The tide of history is with us, and it will compel us to victory after victory after victory", Bannon claimed.

That's something we've been jealous of, and that's something you'll see us taking advantage of subsequently". He explicitly said that it's "the first of several games " coming from the studio.

Despite being ousted from his White House post past year and feuding with Trump in recent months, Bannon praised the president's "economic nationalism" that he said "does not care about your race, your religion, your ethnicity".

"Our dear President Trump said: 'We've had enough of globalists, '" he said.

The two met in Zurich, where Bannon was speaking at a sold-out event about "the populist revolts and their global consequences [sic] for Switzerland, Europe, and America", according to the DPA news agency.

Marine Le Pen is running unopposed for a third term and her address Sunday will see her try to turn a page on the anti-Semitic, openly racist party of her former paratrooper father.

Founded by Le Pen's father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, in the 1970s, the National Front plans to change its name via a vote on Sunday. "It has gone from a party first of protest in its youth, then an opposition party to a party of government", Le Pen said on French television. She bowed out of politics after her aunt's presidential defeat, but is expected to come back in a new role.

"She wants to revive her links with party members and gear up for next year's European Elections".

On some level, the speech presented another development in the transatlantic relationship between far-right movements in the United States and Europe, particularly in France. It won more seats in the European Parliament than any other French party in 2014.
