Brussels fears a Le Pen win could be fatal to the EU.

I certainly hope so! :) 

Make no mistake, Brussels is deeply worried about the French presidential election.

If the right-wing populist and full-throated Euroskeptic Marine Le Pen pulls off a victory in the second round of the election on May 7, it could threaten the entire European project, making Brexit look like a walk in the park.

During a recent debate, Le Pen said she wants France to be a “true country” not “a mere region of the European Union.” And though she has appeared to walk back on the idea of taking France out of the EU wholesale, she recently said she still wants a referendum on membership. She has also argued that France should leave the eurozone as well as Schengen, restoring its border controls and reinstating a French currency.
