(AP) The leader of France's far right party says she will organize a campaign against the European treaty that would enact strict and enforceable budget rules.

The French parliament will vote on the treaty this fall. French President Francois Hollande's Socialist Party supports the treaty and has a strong majority in the legislature, but members of the party's left wing have expressed opposition.

The far right is also against the treaty. National Front leader Marine Le Pen told BFM TV Tuesday that the party's two lawmakers would vote against it and that the party will organize a campaign against the treaty. She would not say what she had in mind.

Le Pen, who advocates abandoning the euro currency, told the station: "The euro was an error. It's time to fix it."
