Following a massive defeat in the EU elections, French President Emmanuel Macron has dissolved the National Assembly and called for elections.

In France, President Emmanuel Macron has taken a shocking step and dissolved the National Assembly. According to a CNN report, he took this decision after seeing the party's big defeat in the European Parliament elections. According to the exit polls, Macron's Renaissance Party is losing to Marine Le Pen's right-wing party National Rally in the European Parliamentary elections held on Sunday.

According to exit poll estimates, National Rally is getting 31.50% votes while Renaissance Party is getting only 15.20%. Socialist Party may remain at third position with 14.3% votes. Elections have been announced in France. Voting will take place on 30 June and 7 July. After the exit polls came out, National Rally leader Jordan Bardella had called upon Macron to dissolve the Parliament.

Just hours after the exit polls were released, Macron announced the dissolution of Parliament in a national address. He told the public, “These results are devastating for the government. I cannot ignore it. I have dissolved Parliament. Now you have the option to choose your political future. I am sure you will take the right decision.”

There are 577 members in the National Assembly of France. There is a separate election for the post of President. In such a situation, even if the Renaissance Party loses, Macron will remain in office. However, if Marine Le Pen's National Rally (RN) gains a majority in the National Assembly, Macron will become a very weak President and he will have to depend on the opposition parties to take important decisions in the Parliament.

Marine Le Pen's National Rally may get a big victory in France.

The presidential election process in France is different from other countries
Presidential elections were held in France in April 2022. Emmanuel Macron won the second phase of voting. In France, if no one gets 50% votes in the first phase of voting, then a second phase of voting takes place. Macron got 58.5 percent votes in the second phase of voting. At the same time, Marine Le Pen got 41.5% votes. It has never happened in the history of France that a candidate has become president by getting 50% votes in the first phase.

Right-wing parties dominate EU elections
European Union elections are being held in Europe. These elections started on 6 June. Today, on Sunday, in the last phase, voting has taken place in 20 countries including France. There are more than 37 crore voters in the 27-nation European Union. They have voted for 720 seats. These MPs will run the European Commission. In most polls, right-wing parties have been predicted to get more seats this time. In such a situation, a change in the face of the new European Parliament is considered certain.
