Marine Le Pen, a far-right candidate in the upcoming French presidential elections, intends to hold a referendum on leaving the European Union, if elected, in the first half of 2018 after negotiations with other EU states, a campaign manager for the candidate told Sputnik.

The first round of the French presidential elections is scheduled for this Sunday, while the run-off is set for May 7.

"Marine Le Pen said that she wanted an exit of the European Union organized with our European partners and that this departure would be sanctioned by a referendum. [Which will be held] undoubtedly in the first half of 2018," David Rachline said.

According to Le Pen's campaign manager, she also wants to "drastically change economic policy, while putting an end to increasing financialization and globalization of the economy."

"We were warned of a catastrophe with the Brexit vote, the facts, however, disagree with those merchants of fear who in reality do not want us to touch this system, which grants them numerous advantages!" Rachline pointed out.

The far-right politician, who has made leaving the Eurozone one of the key points of her program, considers the common currency to be behind a sharp rise in prices, the drop in purchasing power and competitiveness of the country's economy and has criticized Brussels for usurping national states' sovereignty.
