PARIS (Sputnik) — On the last day of France's presidential campaign, Le Pen arrived in Reims in the Grand Est region, where she was met with strong opposition from the supporters of her political rivals. Followers of leftist Jean-Luc Melenchon and independent Emmanuel Macron's En Marche! party are said to have shouted insults at Le Pen, who was accompanied by her ally Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, and blockaded her in the city's main cathedral.
Florian Philippot, the vice president of the National Front party, formerly headed by Le Pen, was pushed by demonstrators into his car.
Le Pen and Macron will face each other on Sunday in the second round of the presidential race. According to the latest poll, Macron has the support of 61 percent of voters, with 39 percent ready to vote for Le Pen.
