Emanuel Macron re-elected as President

International Desk
World leaders have congratulated France’s centrist President Emmanuel Macron on his re-election and the defeat of far-right leader Marine Le Pen in elections.

Macron’s win triggered relief among allies that the nuclear-armed power won’t abruptly shift course in the midst of the war in Ukraine from European Union and Nato efforts to punish and contain Russia’s military expansionism.

The second five-year term for the 44-year-old centrist spared France and Europe from the seismic upheaval of having populist Le Pen at the helm.

However, Le Pen recorded her highest vote yet, and in the wake of the results Macron pledged to reunite the country that is “filled with so many doubts, so many divisions”.
