French President-elect Macron gears up for challenges ahead

Emmanuel Macron

The French media might hate her, but they'll cover her every pronouncement, her every controversy, and you can be sure she'll dredge them up, lacerating Macron after every terrorist attack and faulting the globalists for any and all economic disruptions.

The 39-year-old pro-EU candidate, defeated Marine Le Pen, a far-right nationalist who called for France to exit the European Union, by a margin of more than 31 points, winning 66.06% of votes cast.

Whether it's advisers like Jean Pisani-Ferry, MEPs like Sylvie Goulard, or progressive members of the stellar French civil service, they are certain to know the European Union inside out, further widening the experience divide between United Kingdom negotiators and the EU.

According to Dhuicq, LR which is now divided between advocates of vote for Macron and those who refused to endorse him after the elimination of LR candidate Francois Fillon in the first round, is on the verge of being remodeled. The region's stocks had already rallied since the first round of the presidential election on April 24, with the broader Stoxx 600 still up 9 per cent this year.

After a resounding victory in Sunday's runoff, Emmanuel Macron will be sworn in as France's next President at the Elysee palace on May 14, outgoing President Francois Hollande said.

Macron secured a majority in nearly all French "départments" or regions apart from Aisne and Pas-de-Calais, Le Pen's stronghold.

"The (British) Prime Minister warmly congratulates President-elect Macron on his election success".




Traditionally, French voters have handed a parliamentary majority to the newly elected president in the general election. But reform attempts in France are usually met with burning barricades. Macron is the first president of modern France elected as an independent. Macron said at the time.

Le Pen says the 10.6 million votes she won on Sunday will make her party the leading opposition.

He expressed Iran's "readiness to constantly exchange views [with the French officials] on bilateral, regional and global issues" and hoped that obstacles in the way of enhanced cooperation would be removed during Macron's tenure.

"The National Front must also renew itself", Le Pen told supporters near Paris after initial exit polls put her at 34% of the vote.

I agree with everything Bill Wirtz said this morning about the persistence of Marine Le Pen.

The far right are on an upward trajectory and Le Pen is hinting at a new rebranding and strategy in her post-results speech.

Emmanuel Macron, emphatic victory, which also smashed the dominance of France's mainstream parties, will bring huge relief to European allies who had feared another populist upheaval to follow Britain's vote to quit the EU.
