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

His party is changing its name to La Republique En Marche (Republic on the Move) as it prepares a list of candidates. He'll be replaced by Catherine Barbaron.

According to Richard Ferrand, the En Marche! campaign manager, the organization has so far managed to attract 285,000 members.

European populism appears, as nicely put elsewhere, to have entered the awkward adolescence years: "able to borrow the vehicle but not own it, have an influence on the household but be too young to run it". This was a first in French politics: it signed the end of the so-called "republican pact", under which all political forces join hands against fascism.

At 39, Macron will become France's youngest leader since Napoleon when he is inaugurated on Sunday.

She performed on Sunday significantly better than her father and former National Front leader, Jean Marie, who was crushed in 2002 when he reached the final round of that year's presidential election against Chirac.

But Macron's mandate may be more muted than the numbers suggest. His team was also the victim of a hack, which a cybersecurity firm has said bears the hallmarks of Russian involvement.

If Macron's presidency were to follow a similar pathway to his two predecessors, the public mood could turn against him rapidly. "The growing threat of terrorism and militant extremism is accompanied by an escalation of local conflicts and the destabilization of entire regions".

"In these conditions it is especially important to overcome mutual mistrust and unite efforts to ensure global stability and security".
