8. SOUNDBITE (French) Marine le Pen, leader of far-right National Front:
"We will see at the presidential election (next year) which candidates commit to organize a referendum. You know I am one of those because for the past four years now I've said that six months after being elected, I would organize a referendum on the exit (of France) from the European Union, and that I would use these six months to negotiate with the European Union its transformation into a Europe of the nations, giving back to the French people four essential elements from its sovereignty: territorial, economic, monetary-budgetary and legislative."
French President Francois Hollande is holding meetings with the leaders of France's political parties as European Leaders leaders try to keep the union together after Britain's vote to leave the bloc.
Hollande convened a string of meetings on Saturday with his own Socialist Party, then the conservative opposition Republicans, the far right National Front, the Greens and parties on the far left and centre.
Popular far right leader Marine Le Pen has called for a referendum on France's EU membership.
France is a founding member of what is now the EU, but French voters rejected an EU constitution in 2005 that would have enshrined closer unity, and France has a lot of the same frustration at economic stagnation and migration that drove the British vote to quit the EU.
