Macron Dissolves National Assembly After Defeat

PARIS – French President Emanuel Macron dissolves National Assembly, calls new legislative election after defeat in EU vote.

The crushing defeat of Emmanuel Macron’s centrist list at the hands of Marine Le Pen’s far-right National Rally (RN) is likely to make for an even more fraught end to his presidency, analysts have said.

Macron’s list is projected to score between 14.8% and 15.2% of the vote, less than half of RN’s tally of 31.5-33% – the party’s highest ever in a nationwide election – and only just ahead of the Socialist list on 14%.


Macron was due to address the nation later on Sunday evening. The head of the RN’s list, 28-year-old Jordan Bardella, said French voters had “expressed a desire for change” and demanded snap legislative elections.

Macron was “a weakened president tonight”, Bardella told supporters, saying the “unprecedented gap” in the two scores reflected “a stinging disavowal and rejection of the president and his government”.

Macron Dissolves National Assembly After Defeat

Analysts have said Macron, whose centrist alliance does not have a majority in the French parliament, could face a very complicated two-and-a-half years before presidential elections due in spring 2027.

Problems may start piling up for the president after the summer break, observers say, when the centre-right Les Republicains (LR) opposition have threatened to bring a censure motion against the government.

Such a confidence vote could well bring down the government, which would realistically leave Macron facing a choice between seeking a new prime minister and calling an early parliamentary election.

France is a particular concern,” said Mujtaba Rahman of the political risk consultancy Eurasia Group. Such a heavy defeat “could trigger censure motions, government collapse and even early (legislative) elections.”
