Macron announces Germany visit as he prepares to take the reins

It’s worth learning French to find out how bad the songs of Johnny Hallyday really areGETTY IMAGES

Emphasising on the importance of India-France relations, former ambassador to France Arun Singh told The Times of India, "Relations with France are extremely important for India with key partnerships in strategic areas of defence, space and civil nuclear cooperation". The euro too is expected to gain ahead as Macron is a follower of the European Union unlike Le Pen who is in favor of "Frexit". Michael Roth, Germany's minister for Europe, warned it would be "the end of the European Union as we know it".

This popular desire for change fortunately manifested in the victory by Macron, an open supporter of the EU.

"I would like to help France lower its unemployment rate and to increase the chances of young people to find jobs".

"Knowing all of this the new French President may well find that winning was the easy bit", said Michael Hewson, chief market analyst at CMC Markets. "Together for a stronger and fairer Europe".

Macron received hearty congratulations and expressions of relief from European leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel. However, the prime minister of Estonia, a democratic country with a population of 1.3 million, is 38 years old. "There is hope for Europe".

The euro fell from six-month highs against the dollar on confirmation of Macron's widely expected victory by a margin of 66 percent to 34 percent.

Macron's win comes as a shot in the arm for otherwise despondent centrist political forces all over the world.

Foremost among them was the result of the Brexit referendum last June, which will see Britain pull out of the EU.

Will Emmanuel Macron Be Able to Run France If He Wins the Presidency?

Slovak President Andrej Kiska, along with Prime Minister Robert Fico, Foreign Affair Minister Miroslav Lajčák and others welcomed the election of centrist Emmanuel Marcon, as president of France, following a contest against the right-wing National Front's, Marine Le Pen. She earned more than 10.5 million votes on Sunday, roughly double the number of votes her father won running for the same party in 2002.

The difference between the French and United States elections is that, unlike Trump, Le Pen represented the old order, and people understood "how incompetent and risky she was", according to Philippe.

Emmanuel Macron's ascent to French president caps a stunning rise for the political newcomer and his fledgling party but he now faces another battle to form a parliamentary majority, with his rivals already plotting revenge in June's general election. His People's Party for Freedom and Democracy decisively beat the ultra-right Freedom Party of Geert Wilders.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker put it bluntly: "With France, we have a particular problem".

Amid the noise and celebration of the French election result, Mrs Merkel would have found further satisfaction and hope in another election on Sunday: in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany's northernmost state. He won on the back of a movement, not an established party.

"Macron will inherit a politically divided country full of fears and expectations", Gauthier wrote.
