The 39-Years old former investment banker and Pro-European centrist Emmanuel Macron emerge the winner of the Sunday’s second face-off of France presidential election to become the younger ever leader of the country.
Emmanuel Macron Wins France Presidential Election ahead of Le Pen who is proposed for France exist in European Union, just like Britain last year. The centrist and liberal politician Macron was minister under Francois Hollande administration, but he resign from his post in August 2016, to prepared for his presidential ambition.
The former investment banker Emmanuel Macron, win the presidential election in a margin between 65.5 percent and 66.1 percent of ballots ahead of Le Pen on between 33.9 percent and 34.5 percent.
After announcing as the winner of the election, Emmanuel Macron promised to heal a fractured and demoralised country after a vicious campaign that has exposed deep economic and social divisions, as well as tensions around identity and immigration.
Unknown three years ago, Macron is now poised to become one of Europe’s most powerful leaders, bringing with him a hugely ambitious agenda of political and economic reform for France and the European Union.
The result will resonate worldwide and particularly in Brussels and Berlin where leaders will breathe a sigh of relief that Le Pen’s anti-EU, anti-globalisation programme has been defeated.
After Britain’s vote last year to leave the EU and Donald Trump’s victory in the US, the French election had been widely watched as a test of how high a tide of right-wing nationalism would rise.
Le Pen, 48, had portrayed the ballot as a contest between Macron and the “globalists” — in favour of open trade, immigration and shared sovereignty — and her “patriotic” vision of strong borders and national identities.
