French president-elect Macron to fight 'division'

  • President Donald Trump has called French President-elect Emmanuel Macron to congratulate him

Mr Wahnicht said: "Either Macron appoints a left-wing prime minister and he only replaces the PS [a moribund party that did not even get 7% in the first round of the presidential election] or he puts an iconic right-wing prime minister who is going to destabilise the Republicans".

The former investment banker has little experience in governance, serving as economy minister for two years as his most senior role. "Macron: Not even started, already hated", it read.

With 33.9 percent of the vote, his rival Marine Le Pen garnered the support of more than 10 million voters, a stunning record for her far-right party National Front. Those who couldn't stomach either candidate in the presidential runoff protested with slogans reading: "Neither Fatherland, Nor Boss".

He will inherit a population anxious about the economic impact of globalisation and changes to French identity caused by immigration.

But the campaign's nastiness turned voters off both the candidates and their proposed remedies.

In a sign of their disenchantment with politics, about one third of the French electorate either abstained or cast blank or spoiled votes.

That won't be easy. If Le Pen had won the election and France had exited the EU, that "could've led to the collapse of the union", the official said.

The Police on Monday said a hundred and forty-one people were arrested in Paris after trouble flared overnight following Emmanuel Macron's victory in France's presidential election. - "On the Move" - political movement plans to field candidates for all 577 National Assembly seats.

Fico's statement, provided for the TASR newswire by his spokesperson, declares that the French people have elected their president in a free election and this decision needs to be respected.

Her tally was nearly double the score that her father Jean-Marie, the last far-right candidate to make the presidential runoff, achieved in 2002, when he was trounced by the conservative Jacques Chirac.

Responding to claims Mr Macron is simply the "next Hollande", he said: " I don't want to own Emmanuel Macron.

The choice of the pro-EU Macron as president of the eurozone's second-largest economy has prompted relief across the European Union.

Macron arrived at the Louvre a few hours later to deliver his victory speech.

But the future stability of the bloc is far from certain. Ironically, it seems Le Pen has inadvertently united the country - against her.

With 34 percent, Marine Le Pen nearly doubled her father's score.

"The unknown here is whether this new - and completely untested - young president (the youngest leader of France since Napoleon) will be able to galvanize his country", Schirach stated. "She is defeated and humiliated, although still alive politically and willing to keep fighting", he said.

She also has an aversion to immigrants.

The ceremony marked decades of peace in Western Europe, something Macron made a cornerstone of his campaign against Le Pen's brand of nationalist populism.
