On 7th of May Emmanuel Macron was able to win the election in France despite Marine Le Pen best attempts.  Even going as far as to leaving the leadership of her party in a attempt to distance herself from her party and to become a candidate that represents the French people as said by her.

Macron won a decisive margin of 66.1% of the vote ( 20,743,128 votes ) while Le Pen got 33.9% of the vote ( 10,638,475 votes ) Le Pen immediately conceded defeat. After the Interior Ministry published preliminary results, the official result of the second round was proclaimed by the Constitutional Council on May 10th.

On May 14th Macron took office and would then name Édouard Philippe as Prime Minister on May 15th. The government will soon assemble on May 17th with legislative elections to follow on June 11 -18.  With the elections over and having lost, Marine Le Pen has returned to the National Front party and has taken her leadership role back.  She is most likely getting ready for the legislative elections in June.
