France’s far-right National Rally (RN) party on Saturday chose 27-year-old Jordan Bardella to succeed longtime leader Marine Le Pen, APA reports citing DW.
Bardella, who had been serving as interim party chief, garnered around 85% of party members’ votes.
His rival for the job was Louis Aliot, the mayor of Perpignan and former partner of Le Pen, who got 15%.
Le Pen stepped down from the party leadership in 2021 ahead of her unsuccessful bid for the presidency in this year’s elections.
