Marine Le Pen, President of Frances Front National has emerged victorious from the second round of voting in her northern French constituency of Pas-de-Calais, exit polls are indicating this evening.
Beating President Emmanuel Macrons candidate, Anne Roquet, Le Pen will have succeeded in her personal gamble of winning a parliamentary seat following defeat in the French presidential race, an outcome which had raised questions about her leadership of the nationalist movement founded by her father, Jean Marie Le Pen.
Le Pen, will enter the Assemblée nationale for the first time during the next parliament, and promises to be a thorn in the side for newly elected President Macron and his allies. Having fallen short of the number of seats needed to form a parliamentary group, however, she will lack the clout of a parliamentary grouping.
Conversely, the mere presence of nationalist Le Pen in the Assemblée nationale will represent an upturning of the apple cart, the political establishment long having conspired to keep her from office.
Reportedly exhausted after a grueling presidential race, Le Pen last month announced that she would stand in the 11th district of the Pas-de-Calais constituency, despite electoral defeat in two previous legislative elections there in 2007 and 2012.

The new formula for political success:
Just make sure that somebody’s emails get leaked/hacked, scream “RUSSIANS” after you lose and viola, disputed election!
Modern day Joan of Arc.
Geert Wilders has been an important influence from his seat in the Dutch Parliament, even though he did not win his bid to become Prime Minister. Hopefully, Marine Le Pen can also be influential in fighting for the survival of her country from the French National Assembly. At least, this is a bit of a silver lining.
I hope shell have a voice to help the citizens of France. I wished she won, and I wish the citizens of France would fight the Muslims, since they are the oldest ally of the US.
Stay true to your constituency, Marine! Do a good job for the People of France and you may yet become President!
