PARIS - French National Front founder Jean-Marie Le Pen rejected on Friday a call from his daughter, the party's leader, to leave politics over comments he made that she fears will hurt her push to widen the right-wing party's appeal.

Marine Le Pen said on Thursday she would seek disciplinary action against her father after the 86-year-old was quoted this week calling France's Spanish-born Prime Minister Manuel Valls "the immigrant".

He also defended Philippe Petain, the leader of the war-time government that cooperated with Nazi Germany. Last week he defended a past comment that Nazi gas chambers were a "detail of history".
