Congratulations to President Elect Emmanuel Macron with his stunning victory. People of France clearly made a right choice by electing Mr. Emmanuel Macron to the presidency of France. One wonders if the recent election in the United States had something to do with it, as candidate Marine Le Pen has the same ideological belief and approach to those of President Donald Trump.
It is also amazing that the history repeated itself, but this time not in the USA, but in France, which is hacking of emails of Mr. Macron. Fortunately, the French people as well as the French election authority got involved and asked the media not to publish any of the hacked documents of Mr. Macron.
It is understandable that the followers and supporters of Marine Le Pen are disappointed and some of them are also hoping that Mr. Macron makes mistakes in particular in the area of security of France and hoping some terrorist attacks so to Mr. Macron’s supporters “I told you so” and giving an excuse for Ms. Le Pen to re-run in 2022.
Those who did not vote for Mr. Macron must give him a chance to prove himself. The very fact that Mr. Macron is pro single market and against pulling France out of European Union is a good sign that he knows what he is doing and what is good for France.
Now that French election is over, we need to see what happens in Germany’s general election. Again there is a far right candidate running against Chancellor Merkle who is a centrist and somewhat popular.
