“Therefore, I will obviously assume my duties as long as duty requires,” he added in an official statement after the projections of seats for the new National Assembly, in which the macronist bloc is second after the New Popular Front (NFP) on the left.

Attal called political groups “responsible” because in the new political map “the extremes cannot push for an absolute majority” in the Assembly, “we will always refuse to submit to the extremes we do not want everyone to fight on their own.”

Attal took over from Élisabeth Borne on 9 January. At the age of 34, he became the youngest person to lead a government during the Fifth Republic, replacing Laurent Fabius, who was appointed in 1984 at the age of 37.
