French Presidential Election
16 | May | 2017

Emmanuel Macron (En Marche!) was elected president of France with 66% of the popular vote against 34% of Marine Le Pen (National Front). The European Union lauded the results as a triumph of the European project. However, the abstention attained 25% and the white and null votes reached its highest rate ever, of 11%. Divisions and lack of satisfaction might contribute for Macron’s difficulties in running the country.
