Macron's Election Win Cheered by Scientists

Le Pen pulled in 10.6 million votes, double the number her father Jean-Marie gained in the second round of the 2002 presidential election. That means that nearly half of French voters want to smash "the system".

But Macron said last week if he won, he didn't expect he would get much of a honeymoon. Announcing the changes, the movement's secretary general, Richard Ferrand, said the organization will be "a new political force" on the landscape redrawn by Macron's victory.

"I want to thank you for your strong stance against anti-Semitism, and all forms of racism, which have once again raised their ugly heads around the world", Rivlin wrote in an official letter.

Amid a sea of red, white, and blue tricolor flags at a victory party outside the iconic Louvre Museum in Paris on May 7, Macron said the country was turning a page in its history and pledged to the thousands in attendance to defend France and Europe and "rebuild links between Europe and its citizens". "I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey's letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off". "No, don't boo - they expressed today anger, dismay and sometimes convictions".

And the continent's pro-EU newspapers greeted the 39-year-old's landslide win over France's far-right leader Marine Le Pen, who'd promised if elected to take France out of the eurozone and to hold a vote on European Union membership, as a turning point for the troubled economic bloc. It was a clear victory, but one with a bitter aftertaste, exposing a divided country and presenting huge challenges for the new president.

In his Monday message to the newly-elected French president, Rouhani said under the aegis of positive mutual interaction and cooperation, Tehran-Paris relations would certainly witness more growth and boost in all fields of common interests in politics, economics and culture.

"I am more than relieved, I am delighted to see that Emmanuel Macron has won the election by a wide margin", Catherine Cesarsky, an astrophysicist at the CEA, France's atomic energy commission, told Nature News.

Milner misses penalty as Liverpool held 0-0 by Southampton
Milner said that Jurgen Klopp now has players preparing specifically for opponents who drop behind the ball, as Southampton did. Southampton is looking for some kind of positive news at the end of this season.

The scenes of jubilation extended beyond France.

Mr Macron did not make a statement Monday, but his attention will already have turned to the choice of a prime minister and to the legislative elections of June 11 and 18, when all 577 seats in the National Assembly, the lower, more powerful house of the French Parliament, will be up for grabs.

There really is a lot riding on the success of President Macron - and not just in France.

Late on Friday, 1-1/2 days before polls opened, Macron's campaign said it had been the target of a massive computer hack that dumped internal campaign emails online.

Macron's party said the hackers had mixed fake documents with authentic ones "to create confusion and misinformation". And he clearly suggested that her popularity was rising after the terrorist attack, a claim that in retrospect looks haphazard, at best, and foolhardy, at worst.

After the most extraordinary and nasty election campaign France has ever seen, a young, inexperienced but audacious man has become the new French president - all without having ever fought an election before.
