The French Prime Minister, Manuel Valls, has acknowledged that far-right politician Marine Le Pen could win the 2017 presidential election in France.
“All the opinion polls have the candidate Marine Le Pen making it to the second round,” Valls said of the France’s presidential race in May, warning that a victory for the leader of France’s National Front is “possible.”
“If she does make it to the second round, she will face either a candidate of the left or the right. This means that the balance of politics will change completely,” he said.
“Of course there are risks in France, I am struck by the tone of the public debate,” he said.
