PARIS — French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday said he would not resign “whatever the result” of the upcoming French parliamentary elections.

Macron called the election on Sunday night, in response to a big win by the far-right National Rally in the European election, which has piled pressure on his administration.

“It’s not the National Rally that writes the Constitution nor the spirit of it,” he said in an interview with Le Figaro Magazine. “The institutions are clear, and so is the place of the president, whatever the result.”
