As Western elites lose political power, we are finding them moving toward ever-more anti-democratic methods to maintain power at any cost:
Half a million people received duplicate polling cards in the post, which would allow them to cast two votes at the first round of the election, held on April 23.
French authorities confirmed they would not be investigating the potential electoral fraud until AFTER the election, when retrospective prosecution may take place.
This could crush Ms Le Pen’s dreams of surging to power, as most French nationals living outside of their country are not right wing – demonstrated by the fact many feel they depend on the European Union (EU) to guarantee their stay in foreign countries.
France’s Interior Ministry has said it will not be invalidating the election because of the duplicate voting glitch, but with Bloomberg’s latest poll currently showing Mr Macron and Ms Le Pen polling at 22.8 per cent, and far left Mr Melenchon at 18.3 per cent, it is possible an extra 500,000 votes either way could swing the balance of power.
Does anyone really believe that duplicate voting cards being sent to an anti-Le Pen constituency is just an unfortunate accident? Especially given the Interior Ministry has openly stated it intends to count fraudulent votes as valid? Does anyone think that any voters who commit vote fraud in this election will actually be prosecuted if Le Pen loses?
The people currently running the French government don’t just deserve to lose the election, they deserve a trial and a lengthy prison sentence for tampering with elections.
