France's Le Pen proposes to abandon euro currency

Euro zone countries should retreat from the single currency represented by the euro and return to a "common currency" structure, French National Front leader Marine Le Pen said on Wednesday, evoking the ECU monetary system that existed beforehand, according to Reuters.


Speaking to Reuters after a New Year news conference, Le Pen, who hopes to become president of France next year, also said that French national debt would be denominated in a new national currency under her administration.
