PARIS (AP) — France's prime minister is urging voters to "do everything" to keep the far right National Front from winning any race in upcoming local elections.
The anti-immigrant National Front is tapping disappointment with mainstream parties and has candidates in more towns than ever for municipal elections March 23 and 30.
Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said Thursday that National Front victories would be "a failure for the republic" because the party sows "disarray and fear but does not offer any solutions." He was speaking on Jewish station Radio J after paying homage to victims of a deadly 2012 shooting at a Jewish school.
National Front candidate Steve Briois denounced the call as anti-democratic.
A nationwide left-right alliance in 2002 kept National Front leader Jean-Marie Le Pen from winning the presidency.
