Far-right party leader Marine Le Pen inaugurated her party’s headquarters on Wednesday at a building just 1.7 kilometres from the Elysée presidential palace.
The proximity of the palace to the new headquarters – located at 262 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré -would “make the move easier in May,” Le Pen’s campaign treasurer told Le Figaro newspaper.

Le Pen also revealed her new campaign poster, which features a horizontal blue rose and the text: Marine President (see picture below). The rose’s stem is totally absent of thorns, with Le Pen saying “we left the thorns for the Socialists”.
The party’s new slogan is “In the name of the people”.
