France's Le Pen declares victory over Macron


French far-right, nationalist leader Marine Le Pen is declaring victory in the European Parliament election over pro-EU French President Emmanuel Macron.


French polling agencies are projecting that Le Pen's National Rally will come first in France's voting Sunday, followed by Macron's centrist Republic on the Move party.


Le Pen said the expected result "confirms the new nationalist-globalist division" in France and beyond.


She immediately expressed hope the election could foreshadow her party's victory in France's 2022 presidential election. Le Pen was beaten handily by Macron in France's 2017 presidential vote.


She called on Macron to dissolve the French parliament.
