    But Marechal, the niece of the National Front leader Marine Le Pen, stepped out of the political spotlight.and has established a new conservative institute called "ISSEP" in Lyon.

    Marechal said the purpose of the institute is to train future leaders with a "new approach" to politics and economics, but critics say its aim is to spread far-right ideology.
