Gilbert Collard is a French writer, high-profile barrister and politician, and a prominent member of the Rassemblement Bleu Marine (RBM), a political association and think-tank open to French citizens from all political horizons who support Marine Le Pen, distinct from her Front National (FN) political party. Collard has been an MP for Gard's 2nd constituency since June 2012 (XIV legislature). Collard was elected to the Assemblée Nationale at the same time as Marion Maréchal-Le Pen, who is an actual member of the FN.[1][2][3]
