Paris [France], Mar. 03 (ANI): French Presidential candidate and a far Right leader Marine Le Pen has said if voted to power she would call for a referendum on 'Frexit' to leave the European Union. Pen said that the Euro is "so expensive" for France and Italy, but it was cheap and profitable for Germany. She said that the France's sovereignty is at risk as 65 percent of French's Government debt is held outside the country. "That is why we commit ourselves to the total negotiation of the European treaty to find our sovereignty... followed by a referendum on the Frexit," Adolu Agency quoted Le Pen as saying. Le Pen said her 'first' mission is to give back the self-confidence to the French people and their power over their economy. The first round of the presidential election is set for April 23 and the runoff on May 7. (ANI)
