Macron Wins French Presidency

Macron wins the French presidency according to projected polls. The political newcomer, if confirmed, would result in a full rejection of far-right Marine Le Pen’s hopes and dreams to take the position. Her hope has been that the same populist wave that swept Donald Trump into the White House would also carry her to the French presidential Elyse Palace. A large crowd had gathered outside the Louvre museum as the Macron victory party joyfully waved red, white and blue tricolor flags at the news. If confirmed, Macron’s victory will mark the third time in six months, following elections in Austria and the Netherlands, that European voters have shot down far-right populists who want to restore borders across Europe.

Pollsters Project a Huge Win for Macron

Macron, 39, would become France’s youngest-ever president. He would also become one of the most unlikely to win the position. However, pollsters projected that Macron won 65 percent of the votes compared to 35 percent for Le Pen.

The French presidential campaign has been the most unpredictable in recent times. Many voters rejected the choice altogether. Pollsters projected that voters, cast blank or spoiled ballots in record numbers in today’s race. This is seen as a protest to both candidates.

In a first for postwar France, neither of the mainstream parties qualified in the first round of voting last April 23. This led to today’s winner-takes-all contest between Macron and Le Pen.

Macron has promised a France that will stand up to Russian President Vladimir Putin while also vowing to work with the Russian leader. He has also vowed to fight the Islamic State group, whose extremists have claimed or inspired multiple attacks in France since 2015.
