With the end of the European parliamentary election, many parties saw a drop in their fortunes. One of them who suffered in these elections held across the 27 member nations of the European Union was Emmanuel Macron's Renaissance party.

Snap Elections Lead To Decline In French Stocks

This shook him so much that he dissolved the French parliament and called for a snap election, resorting to the ultimate gamble of all time.

This not only meant chaos and movement for the political entities in the country, but it also moved the entities with their bases in France.
