Trump praises Macron for 'big win' in France's election

Theresa May has warmly congratulated Emmanuel Macron on his election success

Pro European centrist leader Emmanuel Macron was elected as President of France last night.

Mr Macron received a total of 20,753,797 votes, compared with 10,644,118 for Marine Le Pen, the ministry announced the day after the landmark election.

Ms Le Pen's comparative success among younger voters is likely to raise the prospect of another run for the presidency at the next election in 2022.

En Marche compared the hack to the leak of Democratic Party emails in last year's United States presidential election that was blamed on Russian hackers. Transforming an outfit so young into a political force will be no easy task. All 577 seats in the National Assembly are up for grabs. She also has an aversion to immigrants.

The rise in the euro was not as strong as it was after Macron's victory in the first round of the presidential vote.

Webber said: "Adam's extremely clear writing and analysis impressed me immediately: his eye for human detail and careful examination of the stages of the Macron surge add a thrilling dimension to this tale of unexpected political victory". There is something I can't figure out that didn't work.

Together with the abstention rate, that means that one in three voters declined to choose between the two candidates.

And the huge margin by which Macron won shows that the country may not be quite as divided as many had thought. Le Pen is also eyeing the legislative elections. Le Pen's proposals included holding a referendum on European Union and euro membership - and experts agree the euro wouldn't have survived the departure of its founding member and second-biggest economy. Record-high unemployment started dragging French President Francois Hollande's popularity down just a few months after his election in 2012.

Former president Barack Obama had also endorsed Macron, and the young French politician often appeared to be trying to emulate the magic of Obama's 2008 campaign with speeches that appealed to hope, change and unity - while eliding numerous details of his policies.

Pune: 21-year-old gets mom's womb in India's first uterus transplant
In what is the first transplant of its kind in India, a 43-year-old mother has donated her uterus to her 21-year-old daughter. The uterus will be removed so that the patient does not have to keep taking immunosuppressant drugs to keep rejection at bay.

But Macron's mandate may be more muted than the numbers suggest.

Casting a blank ballot - traditionally used by disgruntled French voters as a protest vote - usually increases in the second round. She took 35 per cent of the vote.

European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker wrote on Twitter that he was "happy that the French chose a European future".

Monday was a French national holiday marking decades of peace in Western Europe, something Macron made a cornerstone of his campaign against Le Pen's brand of nationalist populism.

Still Putin wrote a letter of congratulations to the president elect.

And many clearly shared that view - particularly those on the left who vehemently opposed Le Pen but found Macron's plans to reduce corporate tax and cut public sector jobs unpalatable.

"German support can't replace French policies", she said.

"The French have chosen a new president", Le Pen told supporters.
