Emmanuel Macron re-elected President of the Republic for a second term

Emmanuel Macron has achieved what his two predecessors had failed: re-election for a second consecutive term (with 58% of the vote according to Ipsos Sopra-Steria, against 42% for Marine Le Pen). This is an unprecedented performance since the establishment of the five-year term, and a first outside cohabitation. The gap between the two candidates is halved, from 33 points in 2017 to 16 points five years later, according to initial estimates.

The turnout (72%) is one of the lowest in the Fifth Republic for a second round of the presidential election. It is almost 2 points lower than that of 2017, and not so far from the 1969 record (68% of voters for the victory of Georges Pompidou). It will also be necessary to scrutinize the share of blank and invalid ballots when the final results are known. “The French express the desire for a strong counter-power to Emmanuel Macron“, reacted Marine Le Pen, who speaks of a “brilliant victory” for his camp and his ideas.


“Refounded method”

Re-elected for a second and final term of five years, Emmanuel Macron will quickly return to the campaign to obtain the majority in the legislative elections which will allow him to carry out his next reforms. Starting with the pension reform that he wants to launch in the summer of 2022. Discover the essentials of his economic program. “This new era will not be the continuity of the mandate which is coming to an end, but the collective invention of a method overhauled for five more years in the service of our country, of our youth.“, promised Emmanuel Macron in his victory speech on April 24, on the Champ de Mars in Paris. A second mandate which will be “benevolent” and “respectful”, he assures.

Who will be his prime minister? Jean Castex must present the resignation of his government in the next few hours, and the president should allow himself a few days to name his successor, responsible for forming the next government. He will be directly in charge of ecological planning, and will be assisted by two ministers, one in charge of energy planning, the other of territorial ecological planning.
