The euro -- and her fervent wish to withdraw from it -- is a central theme of every stump speech by French far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen, topping her list of 144 election pledges. Le Pen calls the single European currency a "a knife that you stick in a country's ribs to force it to do what its people don't want to do". The leader of the National Front (FN) blames the euro for driving up prices, hurting exports and adding to France's already colossal trade deficit.

Marine Le Pen's pledge to ditch the euro if elected French president would cost the country over 30 billion euros a year in increased borrowing costs, the central bank governor warned Monday.

Banque de France governor Francois Villeroy de Galhau said that pulling out of the single currency would drive up the cost of France's borrowing.
