Rassemblement National candidate for the presidency of France, Marine Le Pen, has obtained a loan of 10.6 million euros to finance his presidential campaign, “from a European bank”, according to the statements of RN president, Jordan Bardella, for AFP, quoted by News.ro.

This loan corresponds to the “authorized spending ceiling”, said Jordan Bardella, who thus confirms a BFMTV disclosure.

This loan is to finance the Reims Convention, scheduled for next Saturday, the operation “5,000 markets”, with buses traveling across the country, and public meetings in a campaign “as close as possible to the French, without excess, but with a clear mind the search for funds “, they underline.

Marine Le Pen has “alerted” French President Emmanuel Macron to the difficulties of financing the presidential campaign, with candidates who are “facing a near-impossibility of finding financing” at banks and who can no longer, following a law since 2017, to borrow money from non-European banks.

In the 2017 presidential campaign, the party borrowed six million euros from Jean-Marie Le Pen’s Cotelec micro-party and eight million euros from a businessman, Laurent Foucher.

The party then lent the money to Marine Le Pen.
