Trump Congratulates Macron On 'Big' Win In French Presidential Election

A White House statement cited the 39-year-old Macron and the French people for "their successful presidential election" and said the United States looks forward to "continuing our close relationship with the French government".

He said the life of minorities in France would have been hard if Le Pen was elected President due to her extreme views on public display of religious symbols.

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.

Emmanuel Macron inherits one of the most powerful positions in Europe, and all the symbolism that comes with it.

No-one who planned to stand for the rightwing Republicans party has defected, party secretary general Bernard Accoyer said on Thursday despite efforts to recruit them.

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

The election took place as the two establishment parties of the French ruling class had sunk to their lowest point in years. But first, he must choose a Prime Minister and win support from the deputies of the French Parliament, without which his Presidency could be largely unworkable.
