Marion Maréchal-Le Pen, the granddaughter of the National Front leader and the niece of the Presidential hopeful, is also the youngest member of the French parliament (she became an MP aged only 22) and a strong opponent of LGBT rights. Previously she insisted that same-sex marriages pushed the country to polygamy. And ow she promises that if her aunt, who is also anti-gay, is elected as President, gay marriages are definitely to be repealed. “It will not be the first priority, but … [repealing gay marriage] is a promise that we will stick to, and I will personally guarantee that this bill is demolished,” the MP for Vaucluse told BFMTV. The number 87 proposal for Le Pen’s candidacy says same-sex marriage will be repealed. “The Front National will replace the provisions made under the Taubira law [the bill enabling people of the same sex to wed, named after Justice Minister Christine Taubira] with civil unions,” it reads.
