Emmanuel Macron is running for a second term as President of France, defeating his rival, Mary Le Pen.
As the results unfolded on a huge screen at Champ de Mars Park at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, cheers spread among Macron supporters. They waved flags of France and the European Union. Macron supporters hugged each other and chanted slogans.
On the other hand, in a large hall on the outskirts of Paris, a picture of despair was captured among the supporters of Le Pen. Le Pen conceded defeat. But he has vowed to continue fighting ahead of parliamentary elections in June.

At the start of today’s poll, Macron could get about 56 to 57 percent of the vote. This information came up in various TV surveys in France. But the real information came in the evening. Officially, the picture is very clear. However, the results will be officially released at night.
This time the margin is less than the competition of the second round of 2016. There was a fierce battle between these two candidates for the service. Macron received more than 6 percent of the vote.
Meanwhile, after the election of Macron, there has been relief among many in Europe. Because of Penn’s presidency, Brexit and the departure of German Chancellor Angela Merkel were expected to cause problems across the continent.
A Reuters message said it would be a “political quake” if Mary Le Pen, known as an opposition to the European Union and far-right, was elected, defeating incumbent French President Emmanuel Macron. However, recent opinion polls suggest that Macron may be ahead.
Macron is the first French president since Jacques Chirac to win re-election in 2002.
