'I want France out of eurozone!' - Presidential candidate

Democracy needs to be restored in France as well as control over its military, Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, a right-wing candidate in the presidential race, told RT. He says “Yes” to free trade and “No” to an undemocratic political super state.

Nicolas Dupont-Aignan also believes France is not free because its leaders are dominated by the EU eurocrats. “I like Europe but I don't like 20 persons in Brussels who have never been elected. They are often corrupted or under influence of financial interests – and they decide everything. It's not possible anymore. Who is Brussels? Nobody!”Therefore he wants France to quit the eurozone.“I'm not against the free market, I'm against the system that doesn't let France to defend itself,” Dupont-Aignan says.

Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, born in 1961 in Paris. Branded a Gaullist, sovereigntist, right-wing euro-skeptic. A member of the center right-wing Union for a Popular Movement (UMP) party until January 2007. The founder and the president of a right “Arise the Republic” party in November 2008. He is a co-president of the European political party EUDemocrats- Alliance for a Europe of Democracies.

The candidate is also against US control over NATO. “I don't want to see French military under American decision. I don't want to be in Afghanistan, I want my country decide where to go.”Dupont-Aignan is forthright on immigration, which is a hot issue in French society, especially after the recent terror attacks in Tolouse. “It's crazy to accept more and more people if we have neither schools, nor jobs for them!”
