Futures rally after centrist takes first round in French election

Political analysts say Macron's apparent win today showed that many French people still believe in a more liberal, open, global society even as populists have won big victories in the previous year with the United Kingdom's vote to leave the European Union and Donald Trump's election in the United States.

Although his opponents tried to paint him as the heir of unpopular French President Francois Hollande, it appears that Macron - with his fresh image and proposal to "unblock" antiquated elements of French society - has struck a positive chord among voters. "From now on, I have an vast responsibility: That of defending the French nation, it's unity, it's security, it's culture, it's prosperity and independence".

Norwegian Foreign Minister Borge Brende, whose country is not a member of the European Union, tweeted: "We need more not less cooperation in #Europe".

"It wouldn't be the classic left versus right divide, but two views of the world clashing", said Jerome Fourquet of opinion pollster Ifop.

French politicians on the left and right immediately urged voters to block Le Pen's path to power in the May 7 runoff, saying her virulently nationalist anti-EU and anti-immigration politics would spell disaster for France. Macron, who had never before stood for election and only started his grassroots centrist movement 12 months ago, will go into the run-off as the clear frontrunner.

For months, polls have suggested Le Pen can not win in a straight run-off against Macron, with a gap between the two as big as 26 per cent as Macron is likely to sweep up votes from the left and right in an anti-Le Pen alliance.

The outcome of the vote will show whether the populist tide that saw Britain vote to leave the European Union and Mr Donald Trump elected president of the United States is still rising, or starting to ebb.

A poll by Ipos Mori put Macron, the head of En Marche!, on 23.7 per cent with the National Front leader on 21.7 per cent. With Fillon and the Socialist Benoit Hamon, who won 6.4%, endorsing Macron in the runoff, it is unlikely that Le Pen can significantly narrow the huge Macron lead.

Switzerland's Le Temps said the result signalled that the French republic was "broken" and that voters wanted "deep changes".

"The major issue of this election is runaway globalisation, which is putting our civilisation in danger", she told supporters. The party has a national network in place were Marine Le Pen to become president.

"If she wins, it will obviously be an anti-Europe, protectionist, exclusionist line that wins and which could have troubling consequences for Europe and France", she added.

Macron welcomed the projections showing him reaching the runoff of the election together.

Macron also drew immediate support from his defeated rivals from the Socialists and Republicans.
