Specifically, Macron has obtained 58.2 percent of the votes, according to public television, which grants Le Pen 41.8 percent of the vote.
Macron confirms in this way his status as favorite, although he would have won with a smaller margin than in 2017, when he achieved 66 percent of the votes. Le Pen, for his part, is heading towards the best historical result for the extreme right in France.
Macron had the majority support of the parties defeated in the first round, among them socialists and conservatives, to obtain the endorsement that will allow him to spend at least ten years in the Elysee. He is the first president to be re-elected since Jacques Chirac’s victory in 2002.
