France’s highest legal body ruled that the election of the extreme right National Front’s sole member of Parliament was illegal due to campaign spending irregularities. As a result, Jean-Marie Le Chevallier will have to abandon the National Assembly seat he won last June, leaving the xenophobic Front with no representation in Parliament. Party chief Jean-Marie Le Pen described the ruling as an “ignominy worthy of totalitarian regimes.”
