He noted that this strategy began in Dreux, where the Socialist, UDF, and RPR candidates agreed to work together to keep the FN from winning a legislative seat. However, he pointed out that this strategy became difficult because it made the FN appear to be the only opposition party. The strategy was thus abandoned, except at the local level. My interviews in France emphasized the role that party strategy played in the success of the FN, as well as conflicts within the party. The mainstream parties’ attempts at different strategies emphasized their fear that cooperation with the FN would lead to greater success for the party.

The main purpose of the interviews was to provide myself (a non-European) with a better sense of the context in which the radical right was developing. I also hoped to gain some insight about the strategies the radical right parties were pursuing, and the strategies that mainstream parties were using against the radical right. I have identified politicians and academics who were interviewed, but interviews with party strategists and staff were done anonymously. These interviews provide a snapshot of the parties and the strategies they were pursuing at the time.

He also stated that there was no ideological difference between the Socialists and the RPR. He felt that this lack of an ideological difference was a capitulation by the right in a country where there had always been a strong ideological debate. This would eventually lead to increased support for the FN. When asked about its electoral strategy, M´egret stated that the FN tried to show the electorate that the mainstream left and right parties were almost the same. Like the Freedom Party, the FN tried to show that it was the only real opposition party.
