French election: Emmanuel Macron wins presidency

08/05/2017
The pro-EU centrist Emmanuel Macron has won the French presidency in a decisive victory over the far-right Front National leader, Marine Le Pen.
Addressing thousands of supporters in the grand courtyard of the Louvre, Macron promised to unite a divided and fractured France, saying: “I will do everything to make sure you never have reason again to vote for extremes.”
Independent centrist Macron has defeated Marine Le Pen by 66.06% to 33.94% according to the French interior ministry.
Mr Macron will also become the first president from outside the two traditional main parties since the modern republic's foundation in 1958.
Ms. Le Pen called to congratulate Macron shortly after news broke of her defeat, telling her supporters and members of the press she wished the new president "success" even though he faces "huge challenges". 
Macron will be inaugurated on May 14th, when Hollande is expected to step down./.
