France's far-right National Front leader Marine Le Pen, who wants to become president in next spring's elections, celebrated Britain's vote to leave the European Union.Pollsters say Le Pen is unlikely to become president, but if she does, she has promised to seek revised terms for France's EU membership, and then ask in a referendum if voters want to leave. She says EU membership has stripped France of autonomy, including on immigration, monetary and fiscal policy.Article 89 of the constitution says that to make any such change must first be approved the National Assembly and the Senate.France's two-round electoral system has so far ensured there are only two far-right members of Parliament and two senators among France's roughly 900 federal lawmakers.A poll published by Ifop in July found that 67 percent of French voters who expressed a view would vote to stay in the EU.
