Macron considers resigning after failed European Parliament elections

French President Emmanuel Macron is considering the possibility of his resignation amid significant successes of right-wing forces in the elections to the European Parliament. This was reported by radio station Europe 1, citing a source close to the president.

“The resignation of the president is not taboo. Yes, you need to consider all options. He is ready to sacrifice the end of his presidential term.", said the source.

The results of the European Parliament elections showed a significant increase in the popularity of right-wing parties, which created pressure on Macron and his party “Republic Forward!” The president's party received fewer votes than expected, which was a serious blow to his political platform and personal popularity.

Macron, who has served as president since 2017, has faced many challenges during his rule, including the "yellow vest" protests, the COVID-19 pandemic, economic difficulties and the conflict in Ukraine. The success of right-wing forces in the elections to the European Parliament undermined his position and forced him to consider various scenarios for the development of the political situation in France.
