The Rassemblement National under Marine Le Pen is at an all-time political high. At 31%, it is currently well ahead of the governing Renaissance party in the polls. Le Pen has succeeded in stylising the European elections in June into a referendum on the presidency - now she sees herself on a direct path to the Élysée Palace.
Should the right-wing populists actually win the presidency in 2027, politically turbulent times are looming. As a renowned expert on Franco-German relations, Dr Charrier explains what impact a Le Pen presidency could have on Germany and the European Union. He urgently warns against fatalism, both in France and in Germany, and calls for a strengthening of Franco-German co-operation and institutions.
