"Humiliation for Macron" - foreign media on results of European Parliament elections

10 June 2024 [15:00] - TODAY.AZ
French President Emmanuel Macron's decision to dissolve the national Assembly and call early legislative elections was a political earthquake for the country after his Renaissance party suffered a "humiliating defeat" from the right in the European Parliament elections.

The article compares the decision of the French president with a roll of the dice, since support for the far-right is at the highest level, other political forces are in "confusion", and the Olympic Games in Paris are just around the corner.

"The result was a sharp rebuke to the president of France, a Europhile who came to power in 2017, promising to ensure that French voters "will no longer have reasons to vote for extreme parties," writes France 24, assessing the election results as "humiliation for Macron."

In addition, the text says, Macron's defeat was a "crushing blow" for Prime Minister Gabriel Attal, who was appointed less than six months ago to "breathe new life into Macron's second term."
