In a dramatic U-turn, Nicolas Dupont-Aignan followed his endorsement of extreme-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen by becoming her nominee for prime minister, should she become president.

"We will form a government of national unity that brings together people chosen for their competence and their love of France," Le Pen said at a Paris news conference on Saturday, sitting alongside Dupont-Aignan.

Dupont-Aignan had previously refused to countenance support for Le Pen, calling her too right wing. But he said he had signed an agreement on a future government with Le Pen, who would include some of his policy proposals in her election platform.
