France's Macron dissolves parliament, calls new elections

French President Emanuel Macron announced Sunday he was dissolving the National Assembly and calling a snap legislative election after his centrist alliance was trounced by the far-right National Rally in the European Parliament elections.

According to the first exit polls, the National Rally won around 32%, more than double Macron's pro-EU coalition, which received 15% of the vote.

The first round of France's parliamentary election will be held on June 30 and a second round is scheduled for July 7.
