How was the decision to dissolve the National Assembly taken? Understand in three minutes

Following the victory of the National Rally in the European elections on June 9, Emmanuel Macron made a decision that no one expected: dissolve the National Assembly and call early legislative elections. This choice, if we refer to the history of the Republic, turns out to be a risky bet for the majority. So, why and how did the President of the Republic decide to use this dangerous presidential weapon?

Olivier Faye, journalist at M The magazine of the Worldinvestigated with Ariane Chemin the circumstances in which this exceptional decision was taken, as well as “a small band of advisors” who participated in this choice, and which includes Bruno Roger-Petit.

In this video, we interview Olivier Faye alongside Françoise Fressoz, political columnist at World. Together, they tell us the underlying story of this elaborate announcement “in the greatest secrecy”.

To go further, you will find the complete investigation behind the scenes of the dissolution below.
