The voting rate was approximately 75%. The cities appear to have turned out the vote very heavily. Le Pen received just under 35% of the vote which for a party and candidate that wants to withdraw from the EU, severely limit immigration and deport those suspected of terrorism is a rather healthy showing. Le Pen just said on French TV that she received 11 million votes.
Macron is going to be a very conventional politician/president. He doesn't look like a very strong figure and France faces severe problems. Le Pen quipped during the campaign that France would have a woman president no matter who won because the actual president would either be she or Angela Merkel. pl
