PM Congratulates Emmanuel Macron On Being Re-elected As The President Of France

New Delhi, April 25 (TNA) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday congratulated Emmanuel Macron on being re-elected as the President of France. In a tweet, the Prime Minister said; "Congratulations to my friend @EmmanuelMacron on being re-elected as the President of France! I look forward to continue working together to deepen the India-France Strategic Partnership."

Macron won a second term as president of France, defeating Marine Le Pen, his far-right challenger, after a campaign in which his promise of stability prevailed over the temptation of an extremist lurch.

Projections at the close of voting, according to media reports, which are generally reliable, showed Macron, a centrist, gaining 58.5% of the vote to Le Pen’s 41.5%. His victory was much narrower than in 2017, when the margin was 66.1% to 33.9% for Le Pen, but wider than appeared likely two weeks ago.
