French Presidential Candidate Proposes 100 Percent Tax

Will Le Pen gain support following last night's attack

But the group identified the gunman as a Belgian national, while French officials believe he was a French citizen.

The European refugee crisis and the recent terror attacks in France have given the far right leader just the fuel she needed. That's higher than the probability assigned to both Trump and Brexit at a similar stage before those votes, they pointed out.

Ms Le Pen's solutions, he said, were woefully simplistic and "would not protect France".

"The government is fully mobilised", he said in a statement.

His manifesto also calls for withdrawal from the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military alliance and the International Monetary Fund, vetoing of international free-trade accords, ending the European Central Bank's independence and taking control of Bank of France.

While no polls have shown Le Pen missing out on the run-off, they are now within the margin of error and any two of the four top candidates have a shot at qualifying.

French police has used tear gas to disperse angry demonstrators protesting against far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen in the southern city of Marseilles.

"They wanted to stay quiet about this problem, to suppress it, to keep it at a distance like one sweeps dust under the carpet", she said.

Elsewhere in the financial market movements related to the French election, the euro is likely to hit parity with the dollar regardless of whether Marine Le Pen is victorious in the French presidential election in May, according to strategists from Deutsche Asset Management, the money management arm of German finance giant Deutsche Bank.

In addition, a growing number of pharmaceutical companies refuse to make additional drugs available for capital punishment. They claimed that Jones's death was "torturous and inhumane" and that he "was moving his lips and gulping for air".

Le Pen has said she would extend the law banning "ostensible" religious signs to the streets of France.

What that also says is that Le Pen's absolute ceiling is 39-40%.

French voters have so far been more concerned about unemployment and their spending power than terrorism or security, polls show, though analysts warn this would change quickly in the event of bloodshed. French centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron an.

He said the goal of terrorists was to "destabilize" the country. In order to consolidate her base, she's made a sharp right turn and is doubling down on some of the core tenets of the National Front platform: French identity and the fight against immigration.

But the moderate Mr Macron, whom other candidates have portrayed as too inexperienced, took a different tack, warning against any attempts to use the shooting for political gain. Candidates have been heavily guarded during the election campaign, but so far there have been few security scares. The majority of French people don't want that.

Yesterday's IFOP / Paris Match poll gave Macron the lead with 23.5%, Le Pen at 22.5%, Fillon at 19.5% and Melenchon at 18.5%.

Meanwhile, Socialist President Francois Hollande, whom Fillon has accused of masterminding a plot against him, deplored the campaign's lack of substance in an interview Sunday evening with French TV France 5.

Melenchon has experienced a surge in popularity in recent days and is now thought to be level in polls with the main conservative candidate, Francois Fillon. He wants to continue a state of emergency put in place after a series of deadly attacks in November 2015. He has promised to tax the rich and renegotiate France's role in European Union and worldwide trade agreements.

Jean Cautirot, who was at the Paris rally, said he and his fellow party members resent Europe's passport-free zone because it facilitates the influx of more migrants, which France does not want and can not afford.
