One in five vote for Marine Le Pen as Nicolas Sarkozy is beaten into second place
According to official forecasts, the 43-year-old daughter of the founder of the National Front (NF) secured between 18.2 and 20 per cent of the vote, performing even better than Jean Marie Le Pen’s shock result in 2002, when he won 17 per cent.
At her press conference on Sunday night she burst into a rendition of La Marseillaise in front of delirious supporters waving the national flag.
