The National Front was a francophone Belgian far-right political party. The party's ideology advocated a strong unitary Belgian nationalism and strongly opposed immigration and also tried to attract Flemish voters. The party's acting leader was Patrick Cocriamont. In the 2003 federal election, it won one seat in the Chamber of Representatives, with 2% of the vote. It also has two seats in the Senate. A recent poll showed that it had the backing of about 9.4% of the Walloon voters. Despite this poll it won in the 10 June 2007 federal elections, 1 out of 150 seats in the Chamber of Representatives and 1 out of 40 seats in the Senate. (via Freebase)
