“From this moment on, I am no longer the candidate of one camp, I am the President of all. I know that for many of our compatriots who chose the extreme right today, the anger and disagreement that led them to vote for the extreme right must find an answer. That is my responsibility”, said Macron in his victory speech, in front of the Eiffel Tower, in an atmosphere far from the euphoria of 2017.
The re-elected President of France made a short speech before about 1,000 supporters who came to the Champ de Mars, the gardens in front of the Eiffel Tower, to thank the mobilization of his supporters, but also to thank all the French who did not choose him. in the first round, but he was voted on today to put up a “barrier” against Marine Le Pen.
“I also know that a large number of our compatriots voted for me today, not because they support me, but to make a barrier to the far right. And I want to tell you that I am aware of my debt in the coming years”, said the French President.
With more than 70% of the votes counted, Emmanuel Macron has 54% of the votes of the French, according to the Interior Ministry. Even with a victory, the governor says that the next five years will not be a continuation of his term.
“No one will be left along the way. This new era will not be the continuation of the mandate that has just ended”, assured the President.
These words pleased Valérie, who came to the Champ de Mars tonight to celebrate the President’s victory, with the Parisian considering that Emmanuel Macron now has to respond to the wishes of those who did not vote for him.
“He has to do something. In the United States, after Obama, came Trump. The far right is our biggest threat. There are more and more people who believe in the ideas of Marine Le Pen. More needs to be done for these people.” “, considered Valerie.
For Macron, the French chose a “humanist, European and ambitious” project, but among his supporters, the most important aspect to change in the next term is the way in which the President speaks to the population.
“I don’t think there’s anything he should change in terms of politics, but I think he should change the perception of his personality a little bit, he has to seem less arrogant. I’ve worked closely with him and he’s very friendly, approachable and nothing protocol”, explained Natasha, who worked with the President when he was still assistant secretary general to François Hollande.
For this Frenchwoman, the vote for Marine Le Pen was “a vote of protest”, bringing together many people who, for example, were against the vaccination of covid-19 or were on the side of movements such as the ‘yellow vests’.
Even with dance music, Macron’s election night took place without the euphoria of 2017, mainly reflecting the relief of the far-right’s defeat.
Next to the Eiffel Tower, the more than 1,300 journalists present were able to watch the President’s arrival to the sound of the Anthem of Joy, with the First Lady and dozens of children, until Macron’s last hug to his supporters.
