Le Pen asserts her readiness top assume leadership after Macron`s decision to call for snap election

(MENAFN) Following President Emmanuel Macron's decision to call for a snap election in the aftermath of his party's dismal showing in the European Union parliamentary vote, right-wing French politician Marine Le Pen has asserted her readiness to assume leadership, signaling the National Rally's preparedness to govern.

Le Pen, widely regarded as the leading contender for the French presidency in 2027, responded positively to Macron's move to dissolve the National Assembly, acknowledging the opportunity it presents for her party. The National Rally, helmed by Jordan Bardella, secured a significant portion of the European Union parliamentary vote, securing 30 seats compared to Macron's Renaissance alliance, which trailed behind with around 15 percent.

Expressing readiness to govern, Le Pen emphasized her party's commitment to addressing key national concerns, including immigration and economic stability. Speaking at a rally shortly after Macron's announcement, she highlighted the party's dedication to defending French interests and prioritizing issues such as purchasing power and immigration reform.

National Rally leader Bardella echoed Le Pen's sentiments, emphasizing the significance of the election results as indicative of the French populace's desire for change. He underscored the determination of the country to steer the European Union in a different direction, signaling Macron's perceived vulnerability in light of the electoral outcome.

With the stage set for a parliamentary election, Le Pen and Bardella have positioned the National Rally as a viable alternative to Macron's leadership, emphasizing their readiness to enact transformative policies aligned with the aspirations of the French electorate.
