The leader of the National Front will submit the 500 signatures to the Constitutional Council himself later on Wednesday, the AFP news agency reports.
Every candidate must be endorsed by at least 500 elected officials to stand, and has until Friday to do so.
I was beginning to think he wouldn’t get the 500 signatures. The last I heard he had 400 and was struggling to get any more signatures. I hope this is a good sign and I hope he wins.
