Marine Le Pen pledges to replace euro in two years

Marine Le Pen said she hoped France would return to a national currency within two years of her taking office as president of France following Sunday's run-off vote.

The National Front-backed candidate also said she may use capital controls if there was a run on the banks due to her threat to pull France out of the European Union. But she stressed they were unlikely to be needed.

French right-wing presidential candidate Marine Le Pen said Sunday that "euro is dead," adding that France should return to the national currency.

Euro is a "burden" for French economy, the country needs to be able to control its national currency, Le Pen said in her interview with the Parisien newspaper.

"We need to control the currency, to adjust it to the economy, because today the single currency is a burden," Le Pen said, adding that "euro is dead."
