French Prime Minister, Gabriel Attal, has announced his intention to resign following the outcome of the parliamentary elections.

Attal’s party failed to secure a majority in the elections, leading to his decision to step down.

The Nouveau Front Populaire, a left-wing alliance, appears to have won the parliamentary elections against all odds.

In a statement, Attal confirmed that he would submit his resignation to President Emmanuel Macron, on Monday.

However, according to France 24, he has offered to continue serving “as long as duty demands” until a new government is formed, citing the upcoming Paris Olympics and NATO summit as key events that require a functioning government.

“Since the beginning of this campaign, I have alerted against three risks: the one of an absolute majority of the (left-wing) France Insoumise party, the risk of an absolute majority of the National Rally, the risk of the disappearance of the movement that embodies our values and principle,” the French PM also said in his resignation speech.

He added: “Those three risks have been completely marginalised by the French people.”

“Tonight there is no absolute majority that will be led by the far right. I believe in this French spirit that is deeply rooted and committed to the spirit of the Republic. Being the Prime Minister was the honour of my life.”

Attal became France’s youngest prime minister in January this year. He was 34 at the time.
