French far-right leader Marine Le Pen plans to nationalise motorways if elected president

Far-right leader Marine Le Pen said on Wednesday she would nationalise French motorways and privatise public television and radio channels if she wins the 2022 presidential election.

Le Pen, who lost to Emmanuel Macron in the 2017 election, is gearing up for her third presidential bid next spring.

She told French daily Le Figaro that these two proposals were aimed at protecting the purchasing power of the French.
