and we're going to go to paris now to talk to our correspondent there lisa louis lisa mother le pen she wants to give her party a new name instead of. it's to be a house home lemoult nasr now which translates roughly as national rally what exactly is she trying to achieve by changing the party's name well she wants a fresh start for the party after the defeat at the presidential elections last year she said in her speech that at last i'm going us united so as you said national rugby would be a positive name as it pays to flow not to night which would be the name of an opposition party now she's saying we are no longer we should no longer be you know position party but we should become the governing party and should be seen as the governing party and yes beach she said three times that the target of this one as you know that with the national rally now that was to really seize power in france
ok so less confrontational name if you want does this also mean a change of political direction was there any evidence of that in her speech. well not really it was actually quite contradictory on the one hand she said you know now people should feel free to rally and to come to our party in vote for us and on the other hand his speech was a very traditional point as united states she was in favor of the french identity against immigration against globalization she said basically i'm going to protect you poor people that are being attacked that are being left behind by evil globalization she wants to crack down on migrants and immigrants actually and given that france is taking in a lot less than other countries such as germany at it's kind of a quite interesting that she should say that and out front has actually quite a tough one to immigration while an immigration or new immigration law that is being pushed through by the government that has been criticized by associations
here is very tough but she says that she would be even stricter and that she would also be a very crackdown very tough on tough we are on terrorists and say that that should be that terrorist attacks should be considered acts of war although france is already seen as a country with one of the toughest anti terror legislations in the mud so she's trying to say you can come to us we're mainstream party but actually a speech is saying something else ok and just very briefly so the party also cutting all remaining ties with its foundational mind upin what's that about. well eighty percent of the about one thousand five hundred people that voted in favor of that and they know that the party probably needs to cut its ties with a family friend there are many depend he's a very far right to the right he was convicted in the past for anti semitism and marie le pen wants to leave that behind to become a mainstream party a governing party really ok lisa many thanks for that on paris correspondent there
