French President Francois Hollande during his meeting with the leaders of the French parliamentary parties at the Elysee Palace concerning the consequences of Brexit, abandoned the idea to hold such a referendum in France. This was after the meeting stated by the French leader of the party "National Front", which is closely associated with the Kremlin, Marine Le Pen, writes Le Point.
She expressed the belief that such a position will increase, "the gap between the people and the European Union."
"We are encouraged to do two things that seem to be important in a democratic society - the first is to hold a referendum to ask French people question of whether they want to continue to stay in the European Union ... On this issue, he (Hollande, - Ed.), said "no", - said Le Pen.
According to him, those "who are calling for a referendum, like the British, plays Russian roulette with European civilization."
