France Snap Election: Macron Says He Won't Resign - No Matter What | 11 June 2024 | President [WEF troll] Emmanuel Macron threw down the gauntlet to the French people and the right-populist opposition on Sunday, calling a snap election to save his leadership, but now says he won't resign even if he loses. France will elect a new Parliament on June 30, after an astonishingly short election campaign of just three weeks after the fresh vote was called on Sunday -- just hours after President Emmanuel Macron's political faction was handed a humiliating defeat in the European elections. The National Rally (RN) right-populists of Marine Le Pen and Jordan Bardella got twice as many votes as Macron's group, the highest proportion of any French political party in 40 years. Macron's "put up or shut up" challenge to the French people could risk everything if the RN wins, particularly now a putative unite-the-right coalition to win the election is coalescing around Le Pen. But high-stakes or not, Macron has now insisted even if he suffers a second massive defeat, he won't surrender the Elysée Palace and will attempt to continue to govern a country clearly opposed to him, and without the support of parliament.
