At this delicate stage of elections anything that could damage Le Pen must be eliminated.
Only if she totally secured her position can she think about changing the law (I'm not even sure how much power in that regard the French president has).
It's always "strategically wise" to take the route of least resistance in the modern parliamentarian system. But how will FN ever be able to change anything if they always adapt to french media & establishment popular opinion ? Will they always be "strategically wise" once in power, not to loose votes in the *next* elections ?
