In a landslide victory as reflected in the result that defied modern precedent, Emmanuel Macron was on April 24th re-elected president of France.

 

In the second and final round of voting, the centrist incumbent secured an impressive 58.2% of the vote, soundly defeating the nationalist-populist Marine Le Pen, who scored 41.8%, according to initial estimates released by Ipsos, a polling group, as voting closed.

 

Mr Macron is the first sitting French president to have been re-elected for 20 years.

 

He also now becomes the only president under the Fifth Republic to have been returned to office by direct universal suffrage while holding a parliamentary majority.
