PARIS, June 24. /TASS/. Britain’s referendum has demonstrated the possibility more countries may decide to leave the European Union, the leader of France’s National Front party, Marine Le Pen, said on Friday.
"Something that nobody dared believe was a possibility just months ago - exiting the European Union - has now become possible," Le Pen said at the National Front’s headquarters in Nanterre.
"The British referendum will cause a great impact on those who believed that nothing could be done in Europe without the European Union," she said.
Le Pen believes that the European theme will now take center stage in France’s presidential election campaign of 2017. She promised that in case of her election as France’s president she would call a referendum on France’s membership of the European Union after six months of talks with Brussels. Le Pen added that "exit from the European Union and the euro system is not final and irreversible."
She believes that a number of politicians and experts were using intimidation methods for putting pressure on the population.
"It would be wrong to pay too much attention to the hysteria on the world markets. It is temporary. The world of big finance should not be allowed to dictate to peoples what their future should be. The British people demonstrated true courage by coming out against the City’s demands," Le Pen said.
"We should be certain about our ability to make democracy stronger than the markets," she added.
