The Front National triumphed in the recent elections in France, becoming "the first party of France" by winning a higher share of the vote than any other party. There are indications that it would have got even more votes, however, had unfair means not been used to hold it back. The party issued this statement while voting was still underway on Sunday.
Numerous failings have been pointed out to us regarding the regularity of the election. Several districts are affected. In many offices the absence of Front National ballots has been observed, or Front National ballots that were of the wrong electoral district for the particular office.
For example, this is the case in the 3rd arrondissement in Paris, in the town of Evry (Essonne), in Sainte-Geneviève des Bois (Essonne); it is also the case in the local authorities in Nièvre, Seine-et-Marne, Saône-et-Loire or the Moselle, particularly. The multiplicity of reports leads us to believe that the fraud is massive.
The Minister of the Interior has chosen to attempt to prevent the victory of the Front National by simply prohibiting it from competing in some parts of the country. It is an extremely serious infringement of democracy.
The Front National therefore accuses the governement of Manuel Valls, and his minister Bernard Cazeneuve, of rigging the votes of the French people by the most odious means. This industrial manipulation must be immediately stopped, and the electoral supervisors must do everything required, on an urgent basis, to ensure Front National ballots reach all local authorities in France.
This is exactly the same phenomenon we saw recently in Sweden, where Sweden Democrat ballots were mysteriously unavailable in many areas. Frankly, it seems utterly bizarre that some countries have a voting system that requires each party to have its own unique ballots. Such systems are clearly prone to this type of fraud.
