Two neighboring countries are heading into sudden elections, and both governments are expected to fall.

Unlike the UK’s election, which is part of the usual political process, France’s snap election is much more intense and risky.

President Macron called for the election after losing to the far-right in European elections, hoping to regain a centrist majority.

However, the far-right National Rally (RN) is leading in polls, with a left-wing alliance close behind.

Possible outcomes include a far-right government or a hung parliament, which could lead to financial crisis, street violence, and institutional collapse.

This turmoil could affect the upcoming Olympic Games and reflects France’s “populist moment,” similar to the US with Trump and the UK with Brexit.
