National Front expels founder Jean-Marie Le Pen
France’s National Front (FN) has ousted its founder Jean-Marie Le Pen in an effort to shed its extremist image and increase its chances of taking power in the 2017 presidential election.

In a statement on Thursday night, the party said it had taken the decision to expel the 87-year-old veteran of French politics after a meeting lasting several hours, during which the executive board “deliberated and decided, by the required majority, to exclude Mr Jean-Marie Le Pen as a member”.

The decision is a clear victory for Marine Le Pen, the party’s current leader and Mr Le Pen’s daughter, who has been locked in a power struggle with her father.

Ms Le Pen, who has tried to present the party her father founded in 1972 as a more moderate force in French politics, decided that enough was enough in April when her father repeated comments about the Nazi gas chambers being a mere “detail” of history.

He also said that France should support Russia as part of a push to save what he described as the “white world”.

Following Thursday’s expulsion, Mr Le Pen told France’s iTélé news channel: “There is indignation; there is sadness. It’s always trying when one has the feeling of not having made any mistake, of having expressed one’s opinion as a politician.”

Frederic Joachim, Mr Le Pen’s lawyer, called the move “a political assassination”.

Mr Le Pen is likely to appeal against the decision in court. He has resorted to legal action several times in recent months with some success.

A former foreign legionnaire, Mr Le Pen has long been a prominent figure in national politics and even reached the second round of the presidential election in 2002. He remains popular with a hardcore segment of the FN, which has long campaigned for tough rules on immigration.

But since taking over the leadership of the party in 2011, his daughter has increasingly seen him as a liability. This year, following his comments about the gas chambers, she accused him of committing “political suicide”.

Mr Le Pen’s expulsion comes as the FN has found considerable success in appealing to voters weary of France’s economic malaise and feeling deceived by the country’s traditional leftwing and conservative parties.

In 2014, following a strong performance in local elections, it swept to victory in European elections. Ms Le Pen, a charismatic figure, has even managed to appeal to some disaffected Socialist voters through her defence of big government and her insistence that the state should be a champion of national industry.

法国国民阵线(National Front)罢免了其创始人让-马里?勒庞(Jean-Marie Le Pen),试图消除其极端主义形象,提升在2017年总统选举中掌权的机会。

在周四晚上的一份声明中,该党表示已决定开除这位现年87岁的法国政界资深人士。该党是在一场持续了几个小时的会议之后做出这一决定的。在会上,该党执行董事会曾“经过深思熟虑,以必要的多数票决定解除让-马里?勒庞的党员身份”。

这一决定是该党现任领导人、勒庞女儿马琳?勒庞(Marine Le Pen)的一次明确胜利。此前,马琳?勒庞与其父一直处于权斗之中。

对于其父于1972年创立的这个党派,马琳?勒庞一直试图令其在法国政坛表现为一支更温和的力量。今年4月,当其父重申纳粹(Nazi)毒气室只是个历史“细节”问题的言论时,马琳?勒庞认定她已受够了。

让-马里?勒庞还曾表示,法国应该支持俄罗斯,以拯救他所谓的“白人世界”。

在周四被国民阵线开除后,让-马里?勒庞向法国iTélé新闻频道表示:“这事令人愤慨;这事令人悲哀。如果一个人感觉没犯任何错,只是以政客身份发表了自己的看法,那么这样的遭遇就会令人非常难受。”

让-马里?勒庞的律师弗雷德里克?若阿基姆(Frederic Joachim)称此举是“一次政治上的刺杀”。

让-马里?勒庞可能会向法庭申请驳回这一决定。最近几个月,他曾多次采取法律手段,并曾取得一些成功。
