Bloomberg: Macron’s decision on early elections has sparked anger in his party

French President Emmanuel Macron’s announcement to dissolve parliament and hold early elections has sparked anger in his Renaissance party, Bloomberg writes.

According to the agency, French Prime Minister Gabriel Attal and National Assembly Speaker Yael Bron-Pivet disagreed with Macron’s action.

“When Macron announced his decision, there was shock and anger in our ranks,” the publication quoted Renaissance party MP Christophe Marion as saying.

Another member of the party said he was upset at the prospect of losing seats in parliament.

However, Macron’s spokesman said that the French largely support the president’s decision. This is evidenced by the results of the poll, notes the agency.

Earlier, Macron said he would not resign “whatever the result” of the snap parliamentary elections.
