PARIS — French Prime Minister Gabriel Attal has announced his plans to resign, stating he will submit his resignation to President Emmanuel Macron on July 8. This decision follows the preliminary results of the early legislative elections in France.

According to Burkina Information Agency, his decision aligns with democratic traditions, emphasizing his readiness to continue leading the government as needed during this transitional period. “In accordance with democratic tradition, I will submit a letter of resignation to the President of the Republic on the morning of July 8,” Attal declared.
