What is the future for French politics?
Marine Le Pen is to succeed her father as leader of France's far-right National Front. Will this change the shape of politics in France?
Jean-Marie Le Pen, founder of the FN, stepped down at the weekend after four decades as leader.
Ms Le Pen says she wants to break with the party's xenophobic image - her supporters say she will bring a softer edge to the National Front, which has been widely accused of racism.
Are you in France? Will this appointment make the National Front more attractive to voters? With President Nicolas Sarkozy's popularity ratings at a record low, what impact will this have on French politics?
