Emmanuel Macron, the President of France, dissolved the French Parliament to hold early elections following unexpected results in the European Parliament elections.

On Sunday, June 9, after the significant success of right-wing parties in the European Parliament elections in France, Macron dissolved the French Parliament for early elections.

In a brief televised statement, Macron announced that the early elections would be held from June 30 to July 7. International media have described this move by Macron as a “political gamble.”

He said, “I have decided to return the future parliamentary election to you through voting. Therefore, I am dissolving the National Assembly (Parliament).”

The dissolution of the French Parliament came after Macron’s party, Renaissance, was decisively defeated in the European Parliament elections, while the far-right National Rally party unexpectedly solidified its lead.

Exit polls from French voters indicate that the right-wing National Rally party secured 31.5% of the votes, while the Renaissance party garnered only 15.2% in the European Parliament elections.
