France's National Front will continue to oppose the use of the euro in France and will make its opposition a key plank of its 2017 presidential campaign. The statement by top officials follows a meeting on Sunday to discuss the party's strategy in next year’s election.
"We must restore a currency that is a tool of our economy," National Front Secretary General Nicolas Bay told iTele news.
"We have a system that is not viable, which is against our interests, we have a trade balance with a deficit of tens of billions of euros, it would obviously be in our interest to have a weaker currency," he said.
Bay said the party would not impose a sudden exit of the euro zone and that the matter would be submitted to a referendum.
In a statement the party said that the main lines of policy had been reaffirmed at the meeting, including national, economic and monetary sovereignty.
