Theresa May speaks about Emmanuel Macron | Harrow, North West London
Theresa May: Give me a mandate as big as Emmanuel Macron's

With an estimated 65.1% of the vote, 39-year-old former investment banker and Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron will be the youngest president of France. After a contentious election that saw the first runoff between candidates from parties other than the traditional left and right, the independent centrist Macron defeated extreme right National Front leader Marine Le Pen. France was glued to the television today, holding its breath until the results were announced at precisely 8PM local time. About an hour and a half later, U.S. President Donald Trump weighed in with his congratulations:

Macron spoke at a little after 10PM local time, standing in front of the Pyramide du Louvre with thousands of supporters gathered on the esplanade that faces it and backing into the Jardin des Tuileries. He walked to the stage alone, with no bodyguards, to Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” — the anthem of the European Union of which he is a supporter. The same music was used by François Mitterrand for his first victory celebration. The Louvre Pyramide too was commissioned by Mitterand.

Thanking his supporters, Macron noted more than once that the task ahead is “immense” and will involve reinforcing the economy and ensuring the safety of all French citizens. “We will not give in to fear, to division, to lies, to a love of decline or defeat,” he said to a fractured French republic. He also had a word for those who voted Le Pen, saying he understands their fear and anger and that he will do all he can to ensure they have no further reason to vote for extremism. Tonight, he said, “it is Europe and the world who are watching us.”

Le Pen had earlier and immediately taken the stage from her election night HQ in the Bois de Vincennes. Notably, she said she is planning to overhaul the National Front party and lamented that France had chosen “continuity” in voting Macron.

After the first round election two weeks ago, world media declared the result that knocked out the main parties a “new revolution.” A one-on-one televised debate this past week, which took a nip out of box office that night, did not serve the anit-immigration, anti-Europe Le Pen. Amid bursts of snarling, sarcastic laughter, she was on the attack towards Macron without ever really digging into policy proposals.

World leaders have congratulated Macron, including May who is navigating the UK’s exit from Europe. A Downing Street spokesperson said, “The prime minister Theresa May warmly congratulates President-elect Macron on his election success. France is one of our closest allies and we look forward to working with the new president on a wide range of shared priorities.”
