Elections in France: ‘Many voted to build a barricade against the far right’, says Macron

Emmanuel Macron has beaten far-right candidate Marine Le Pen to win the French presidency, projections have shown.

Macron has taken 58% of the vote to Le Pen’s 42%, which is a smaller victory than their previous competition in 2017.

Speaking to supporters in central Paris, he asked them not to buh over the name of Marine Le Pen, saying: “From now on, I am no longer a candidate for one camp, but president for all.”
