French National Rally party leader Marine Le Pen blasted President Emmanuel Macron's proposed pension reform, calling it a "slashing reform" that would "cause precariousness," during a visit of the "Made in France" expo in Paris on Saturday.

"[The retirement pension reform] will really cause precariousness, it's a slashing reform, once again, which will affect millions of French people," she said. "Therefore I am here to defend the French social protection system, which is going to be fractured by Emmanuel Macon."

Macron's government seeks to merge France's 42 different pension systems into a single, universal points-based system.

Le Pen can be seen visiting various exhibitors at the salon while speaking to attendees and to the press. The MIF Expo takes place from November 8 to 11.
