France's Macron got 10m more votes than Le Pen in election

Emmanuel Macron ignites the crowd at his Paris victory rallyMore

Like his predecessors, Macron will be judged above all on employment, and he has vowed to force through reform of France's hidebound labour laws using executive orders during his first months in office. After all, almost 11 million people voted for Le Pen, around a third of those who cast their ballots.

President Donald Trump is offering praise and congratulations to centrist Emmanuel Macron, who has been elected as France's youngest president ever.

The president walked beside the 39-year-old Macron to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the monument, where they laid a wreath.

Defeated US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who like Macron had her campaign hacked, tweeted: "Victory for Macron, for France, the European Union, & the world".

If Macron's presidency were to follow a similar pathway to his two predecessors, the public mood could turn against him rapidly. "Macron, his administration, and France's next parliament should reflect on what has prompted so many to vote that way and address those concerns while defending rights for all".

After Francois Hollande formally hands power to Macron next Sunday, the new president is expected to visit Berlin again.

Macron defeated the far-right leader Le Pen.Le Pen's decisive defeat, with an estimated 35 per cent votes, has put Trump in a slightly tricky spot after he had indicated support for her ahead of the first round of the polls.

"It's a great honor and an awesome responsibility", Macron declared somberly, thanking his supporters "from the bottom of", as cited by France24.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said: "the decision of the French voters is also clearly a vote for Europe".

Ms. Merkel's spokesperson, Steffen Seibert, said the Chancellor is looking forward to working with the new president in the spirit of the traditionally close Franco-German friendship.

He added that his primary task over the coming five years was to "calm people's fears, restore France's confidence, and gather all its people together to face the huge challenges that face us in the future".

"I call on all patriots to join us", she said. "My duty is to alleviate fears and rekindle optimism", said the next President of France.

Oxford Economics reported the following: "Emmanuel Macron's landslide victory shows French voters acknowledged that leaving the euro will not solve the economy's problems".

"The task that awaits us, my fellow citizens, is vast and starts tomorrow".

"We congratulate President-elect Macron and the people of France on their successful presidential election", the statement read.

Macron told the Louvre crowd that the Le Pen vote was one of "anger, disarray".

At the global level, conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and South Sudan, marked by deliberate attacks on civilians and serious violations of worldwide humanitarian law, should be at the top of the new president's diplomatic agenda.

Now she wants a wider spectrum of voters, "those who choose France, defend its independence, its freedom, its prosperity, its security, its identity and its social model". I will serve you with love.
