Trudeau congratulates France's president-elect Macron on decisive win

In his words France, by electing Macron as president, has showed Slovakia a way "to stop people in politics, who only criticise and offer only conflict and egotistic solutions", Zuzana Čižmáriková, the head of the communication department at parliament informed TASR.

The convincing victory of Emmanuel Macron, the creator of a barely year-old centrist political movement Le Marche!

According to Le Gal, Macron was "very impressed by the innovation and entrepreneurship" of the country when he visited Israel two years ago.

"But support doesn't necessarily translate into a nomination".

The Socialists are torn between the radical left of their defeated candidate Benoit Hamon and the more centrist, pro-business branch led by Manuel Valls, who was prime minister under Hollande.

Mr Macron believes the French people will give him another victory in parliamentary elections, which will take place on June 11 and 18.

Macron's landslide win over the far-right's Marine Le Pen has been hailed a victory of hope and optimism, over fear and reaction.

History of Mother's Day: Anna Jarvis
Another mother cried for nearly an hour to plead that her daughter graduate with her batch, even if she had failed in a subject. Mary Lou Horlacher certainly wasn't flawless - no more than any other mother - but she often sacrificed greatly for my welfare.

Around 350 Paris police officers evicted 1,609 refugees from several camps in the north of the capital yesterday morning. "Twenty-five percent of French citizens abstained", he said. His prospective parliamentary coalition will go under the name The Republic on the Move - a name combination that smartly suggests traditional French politics and Mr. Macron's own energy, but nonetheless a party with no parliamentary seats.

The 27-year-old, one of only two National Front (FN) lawmakers in the outgoing parliament and a popular figure among the party faithful, said in a letter to the Le Dauphine Libere newspaper that she would be leaving political life for a while for personal and political reasons.

The task for Mr Macron will be to show his detractors, including voters resistant to the European Union, that he will follow through on his pledge to fundamentally reform the bloc.

Something as small as a sound defeat in the French presidential elections wasn't going to stop Marine Le Pen from enjoying a bit of a boogie.

President-elect Emmanuel Macron is seen on a giant screen near the Louvre museum after results were announced in the second round of voting in the 2017 French presidential elections, in Paris, May 7, 2017. Before the election, Nature polled thousands of French scientists and, of the 173 respondents, most supported Macron with "with nearly no support for Le Pen", Nature reported April 20.

But EU commissioner Pierre Moscovici, who was finance minister under Hollande from 2012-14, urged his party not to establish itself as Macron's opposition.

At a rally in Marseilles, France, on April 20, Ms. Le Pen said, "The third-world demographic push is accelerating".
