Joy and relief at the Eiffel Tower

– And: that it was not Marine Le Pen, adds Delille, who works in the health care administration in the capital.

Over the past five years, he believes that Emmanuel Macron has shown what he stands for when France is faced with a crisis, or more.

– He has been very brave.

For the next five years, he hopes that Macron will place a little more emphasis on climate policy and continue on the path to the EU.

– And on culture, our democracy, says Martin Delille, who then thinks of “the big debate” that the president tried to initiate in connection with the Yellow West’s protests.

Agnès, who does not want to give her last name, has worked for many years as a civil servant in Brussels. The EU is close to her heart.

“Good news for you”

Agnès, who has worked as a civil servant in Brussels for many years, celebrates with an EU flag. That is what she considers to be the most important issue.

– He (Macron) has a vision for Europe, for the future and for young people, she says in the hustle and bustle of the Mars field.

That Macron is re-elected is good news for Europe, including Sweden, she says.

– The most important thing right now is that we stick together within the EU and stand strong. Then we need a democratic force like him to follow.

“Understand the difference”

Several young boys in Les jeunes avec Macron, the president’s youth organization, have come to Paris from different parts of the country to gather. Some come from northern France, some from the Loire Valley, some from Orléans. Now they are going to celebrate.

– Now we are waiting for our new, or new old president. Then we will dance, drink and sing, says Florian Galmiche, when Emmanuel Macron was still on his way to the election vigil.

Galmiche was not completely calm this morning, with the opinion polls of recent weeks in mind. But he is also not surprised that the margin of victory was greater than what was predicted.

– The French still understand the difference between these two politicians, says Florian.

Danish dance

Four Danes dance so that the gravel is dizzy for a while after the election results have been announced. They are members of the liberal Danish party Radikale Venstre and went to Paris to support the Macron camp. That way, they got to visit Macron’s party En Marches headquarters over the weekend.

– We were not so worried, but a little. They did not want to take anything for granted, says Julie Ruby, who comes from Odense.

She hopes that Macron will have more opportunities to implement his policy in the next five years, with fewer world-changing events in between. For the sake of Denmark and the rest of Europe, this was by far the best result, says Julie Ruby:

– It is of great importance for Denmark to have a pro-European president in France, not least when Merkel is not left in Germany. Then it is good to have an experienced leader at EU level.

Intimidated by Le Pen

Thibaut Doguet also wants to emphasize Emmanuel Macron’s crisis management. He works in healthcare and during the pandemic he received a salary increase.

– He has been our president through all these crises.

A Marine Le Pen in power scared him. He describes her as “a racist and homophobic” who manipulates and intimidates people.

– Then I would not have recognized myself in this country anymore, he says.

Thibaut Doguet’s friend Divinie Kinzeka voted for left-wing leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon in the first round, but cast his second vote for Macron and was then persuaded to follow Macron’s vigil. Now she can join in and celebrate.
