Le Pen, Jean-Marie

(1928- )
   political figure
   Born in La Trinité-sur-Mer, Jean-Marie Le Pen served as a Poujadist deputy (1956), then as an independent (1958-62), and has been president of the right-wing Front national since 1972. He served as deputy again from 1986 to 1988 and was a candidate in the presidential elections of 1974, 1988, 1995, and 2002. In that last election, the large percentage of votes that he gained alarmed all moderate and left-wing voters concerned about his extreme, xenophobic political views and proposed policies.
