The Far right have little power in France. They are very vocal and have gotten some wins on local level and EU level. However on a national scale they are nothing.

How many members of the French parliament? 2 out of 577.
How many members of the French Senate? 0 out of 348.

They can call all they want, but getting a referendum going would require them getting support from other parties who all are pro-EU. Aint gonna happen at the moment.
