Feature looks at the situation in France as regards the campaign for the elections to the European Parliament held in May 2014.

Jean-Marie Le Pen, founder of France's far-right Front National, suggested on the 20 May 2014 the deadly virus Ebola could solve the global "population explosion" and by extension Europe's "immigration problem".

Opinion polls have suggested that the FN could score between 23% and 25% of the vote in France during the 2014 European election, beating the opposition centre-right UMP party and the ruling Socialists.
