Violent protests after parliamentary elections in France
Following the French parliamentary elections, which led to the defeat of the right-wing party and Macron's party, and no party reached the majority, supporters of left-wing parties started violent protests in Paris and a number of cities. At the same time, "Gabriel Ethel" resigned from the position of Prime Minister yesterday (Monday).
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA): "Gabriel Ethel's" action is carried out in a situation where the moderate coalition of French President "Emmanuel Macron" failed to win the majority of 289 seats in the parliament. According to the results, the leftists came first, the moderates came second and the right came third in the elections.

According to CNBC, the resigned French official said: "I know that according to the results, many French people feel certain uncertainty about the future, because there was not an absolute majority in the parliament. "Our country is experiencing unprecedented political conditions."

Appointed by Macron just six months ago, he said he would remain in office until a new government is formed if the French president so requests.

But according to the results of Sunday's elections, it is not clear how long it may take to form a government. To run the French government effectively, Macron must form coalitions, although he has said he will not negotiate with leftist leader Jean-Luc Melenchon, whose party won first.

However, a statement from the Elysee Palace said that "as the guarantor of our institutions, the president will respect the choice of the French people." According to the Associated Press news agency, Melanchon, for his part, called the results "a great relief for the majority of the people of our country."
