Brussels wants to play it hard, Juncker to May: "You're not leaving a golf club"
The western global elites, frightened of another popular revolt, all helped to put Macron in place
Emmanuel Macron has won the French presidential elections, receiving 66.1 percent of the vote, while his rival, Marine Le Pen, got 33.9 percent, the Interior Ministry said, citing final results.

In fact, 66.1 percent of the votes just means that only 33 percent of the French people voted for Macron, because 4 million French voted blanco and 12 million were so unhappy with both candidates that they didn’t even bother to vote.

Nevertheless, Marine Le Pen has congratulated Macron on his victory. “The French voted for continuity and I called Monsieur Macron to congratulate him on his election,” she said. What she really meant was probably: “The French voted for more austerity and inequality.”

Speaking after the polling stations closed on Sunday, Macron said that his victory was “a great honor and a great responsibility.” He promised to “protect the most fragile” and to fight against “all forms of inequality and discrimination.”

“I will defend France,” he said, adding that he will be “at the forefront” of the fight against terrorism.

Macron’s victory shows that the majority of French people wanted to unite around the “values of the republic,” outgoing French President François Hollande said. “His big victory confirms that a very large majority of our fellow citizens wanted to gather around the values of the Republic and mark their attachment to the European Union,” Hollande said in a statement.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault has congratulated Macron on his victory.

The inauguration of Macron as president could take place on May 14, Le Figaro reported, citing sources.

As previously stated, at least 4 million voters have left their ballots blank, a number that has doubled in comparison to 2013, Le Figaro reported, adding that at least 12 million French citizens did not vote at all.

Well, at least the Eurocrats are very happy, a Frexit was the last thing they wanted. That’s the reason 92.3 of the overpayd French in Brussels voted for Macron.

Thirty-nine-year-old Macron, from the northeastern city of Amiens, will become the youngest president in French history. He served as Economy Minister under Socialist President Francois Hollande’s government in 2014-16, then stepped down and set up the En Marche! movement to fight the presidential election.

Macron’s victory is a “victory for the financial oligarchy, the French will realize [it soon],” Florian Philippot, Vice President of the National Front party, told TF1 TV channel.

Macron and right-wing candidate Marine Le Pen were neck and neck in the first round of elections that took place on April 23, when Macron got 24.01 percent and his rival Le Pen took 21.30 percent of the vote.

Macron’s first round rivals, conservative Francois Fillon and leftist Benoit Hamon, said they would vote for Macron in the second round of the election.

Jean-Luc Melenchon, in a statement following the first results of the elections, said on Sunday that Macron is planning a war on the French social welfare system.

“The program of the new monarch-style president is known already. It is a war against the French social welfare system, and [a program of] ecological irresponsibility,” he said.
