World Leaders Congratulate Macron on French Election Win

Mr Wahnicht thinks in particular of Xavier Bertrand, president of the Haut de France region (in the North) and former minister of Nicolas Sarkozy. It was this latter France that voted for Macron's far-right opponent, Marine Le Pen.

On May 7, Macron was elected French president, taking around 65 percent of the vote to Le Pen's 35 percent.

Le Pen said her "historic and massive" score turned her party into "the leading opposition force against the new president's plans".

Elections for the French National Assembly will take place in June.

His party, En Marche!

Macron's team has expressed confidence he can win an outright majority of 289 seats, despite the electorate being split four ways between the centre, the right, the far-right and the left.

Mainstream parties on the left and right that were frozen out of Sunday's runoff in a first for modern France, also are regrouping, aiming to clip Macron's wings and impose their political agenda, via parliament, on his five-year term.

The result wasn't close - Macron had 64 per cent support with about 90 per cent of votes counted.

Even though Macron had never ran for or held elected office before, his victory has made him the youngest President of France's Fifth Republic so far.

Ms Le Pen said she had called the 39-year-old to concede defeat after voters rejected her "French-first" nationalism by a large margin.

Claiming a "massive" result of 10.64 million votes - a record for the FN - she promised "a profound transformation" of the party to grow its appeal.

The New York Times said that France, like the United States, Britain and other major democracies, faced the challenge of "many people feeling marginalised by globalisation, economic stagnation, an unresponsive government, unemployment, faceless terrorism and a tide of immigrants".

"His programme can put France back on a path of stronger growth, but he may only get a small majority in June's parliamentary elections".

Still, despite his extra-ordinary margin of victory, Macron knows the forces he will have to face-off during his term as president are tremendous.

"The resistance of the right is the main danger for Macron", said Braud. Symbolically, Macron also said German Chancellor Angela Merkel will be the first foreign leader he will meet as president.

The so-called Penelope- gate affair, which involved alleged fictitious employment associated with Republican right-wing candidate Francois Fillon, they say, played into his hands, and Macron did not hesitate to use it in statements on TV and elsewhere, condemning politicians who employ their relatives.
