Seeking to rebrand itself and bounce back from electoral defeat, France's far-right National Front Tuesday sent a questionnaire to party members asking them whether it should change its name and policies.Six months after party leader Marine Le Pen suffered a crushing defeat against centrist Emmanuel Macron in the presidential election run-off, the poll is part of the 45-year-old National Front's efforts to relaunch itself.More crucially, they are asked if they want to ditch the euro and hold a referendum on France's membership of the European Union and if they think the party should focus less on immigration.Opposition to the euro and immigration have long been at the heart of the party's policies, but in the six months since her defeat, Le Pen has progressively watered down her anti-EU stance, which is unpopular and widely considered to be one of the reasons why the FN does not win major elections.
