法國極右翼大老遭女兒停權 另組政團討面子

最近被自己的親生女兒停止榮譽主席角色的法國極右翼政黨「國民陣線」(Front National)創建者勒龐(Jean-Marine Le Pen) 11日宣示,要創立1個新的政團。

英國《衛報》(the Guardian)於台灣時間12日報導,勒龐表示這個新的政團不會是1個政黨,也不會與他自己一手打造的「國民陣線」競爭,但將施加壓力,讓「國民陣線」回歸過去數十年政治路線。

老勒龐的女兒瑪麗安•勒龐(Marine Le Pen)在接替老爸帶領「國民陣線」後,藉由消除該黨的一些妖魔化形象而開拓許多票源。她在2011年上任後,便試圖消弭該黨的暴力行為,但仍然堅持反對移民、反伊斯蘭和反歐盟的強硬派民族主義綱領。

然而她的努力,經常被自己的老爸一些凸槌挑釁言論毀於一旦。

上週,老勒龐又再度重申,納粹大屠殺只不過是二戰的1個小細節。這話一出,引發輿論譁然。結果他自己一手創立的政黨,而且還是親手交給女兒管理的政黨,只好與他切割,把他停權。老勒龐氣得痛罵女兒身邊的黨高層是一群掠食動物、一群黑社會。

老勒龐希望自己的女兒不要被身邊的「壞人」讒言影響,並且希望藉由新的運動來「撥亂反正」。上個星期還說要與自己的親生女兒脫離關係的老勒龐現在氣消了,說自己的女兒有擔當,能挑起責任。

「國民陣線」的1位發言人對創黨之父的舉動不以為意。他說,這個政團不過就是老勒龐之友會,是勒龐所有、勒龐所治、勒龐所享,並且讓勒龐繼續當老大的集團罷了。

France National Front: Jean-Marie Le Pen 'ashamed' his daughter has his name

France's National Front party founder Jean-Marie Le Pen says he is "ashamed" his daughter - current party leader Marine - still bears his surname.
Amid a growing feud, Mr Le Pen said he hoped she "would get married as quickly as possible so as to change her name".
He added he would not support Marine in presidential elections in 2017.
His remarks came after the far-right party suspended Mr Le Pen, 86, after he repeated his view that the Holocaust was "a detail of history".
Marine Le Pen, 46, has been trying to steer the National Front (FN) away from its racist and anti-Semitic past.
Ms Le Pen's view is that FN's growth is being held back by memories of what it used to be, and that to move to the next level it must cut itself free from its past, the BBC's Hugh Schofield in Paris reports.

French media on father-daughter feud

Dominique Albertini in Liberation notes that Marine Le Pen "dealt with the paternal problem in the most radical way."
Le Parisien goes further, saying that the move was the "denouement of an unprecedented political and family crisis" and describes her decision as "Oedipal".
But some regional papers say that Mr Le Pen could still be dangerous.
Patrice Chabanet in the Journal de la Haute-Marne warns Marine to guard against her father who "is not a man to be dictated to" and warns of his "capacity to do harm".
Laurent Bodin in L'Alsace agrees, saying that even outside the party, her father is a "thorn" in its side.

'Felony'

Speaking to France's Europe 1 radio, Mr Le Pen said: "I was hoping that the president of the National Front would get married as quickly as possible so as to change her name.
"Because I'm ashamed that she has the same surname as me."
Asked if he would still be supporting his daughter in the presidential elections, Mr Le Pen answered: "Not for the moment."
Mr Le Pen has been suspended but not dismissed by the party - a decision he described as a "felony".
An extraordinary party congress is expected to be held within three months aimed at ending the function of honorary president - which Mr Le Pen has been holding since stepping down as leader in 2011.
Some commentators have suggested he could be more of a risk outside the party than within it.
Mr Le Pen still holds a seat in the European Parliament and a post as a regional councillor in the south of France.
