Marine Le Pen Offers Hardline Solution to France's 'Yellow Vest' Crisis

The last time France's National Assembly was dissolved was over twenty years ago, but Le Pen claims that now is the time for action as France is suffering from violence unseen in years. Emmanuel Macron decision to increase fuel taxes stirred tensions in the country; the president stood by it, angering protesters and provoking clashes with police.

Marine Le Pen, the leader of France's right-wing National Rally party, proposed to dissolve the lower chamber of the French Parliament and hold new parliamentary elections amid the ongoing massive protests against rising fuel prices.

"It is necessary to implement proportional representation and dissolve the National Assembly in order to hold new proportional elections," she said in an interview with TV channel France 3 which aired on Sunday, adding that the authorities have no choice in the current situation.
