Marine Le Pen proposes an overhaul of France’s legislative and electoral system

PARIS — Far-right leader Marine Le Pen vowed to overhaul France’s legislative and electoral system if she wins the French presidential election, accusing President Emmanuel Macron and the country’s political establishment of exploiting the current electoral laws to consolidate power and advance to oppose the will of the public.

In her first press conference since qualifying for France’s April 24 presidential election, Ms Le Pen said she plans to govern by holding a series of referendums on France’s political system. A referendum, Ms Le Pen said, could prompt voters to anchor their push for elections in which at least two-thirds of seats in France’s parliament will be allocated by proportional representation rather than the country’s current two-round voting system.
