PM speaks to newly elected French President

Irune Rengel | 19 May, 2017, 22:57

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has congratulated Emmanuel Macron on his emphatic victory in the French presidential election, expressing hope that the relations between the two countries would further deepen in line with their common interests.

"Macron, Hollande's former economy minister, started his own independent movement "En Marche" (On The Move") in April a year ago but has no traditional party behind him.

Macron stepped down from the chairmanship of the movement on Thursday and 68-year-old former Socialist government adviser Catherine Barbaroux was named as interim president. Macron is already looking the part.

Current President Francois Hollande spoke of his "emotion" at the event but Mr Macron did not say a word.

French President-elect Emmanuel Macron begins his first day of official duties.

On Monday, though, Hollande gripped Macron's arm before the two men walked side by side and then announced the transfer of power would take place on Sunday.

Le Pen nevertheless won the support of 10.6 million people.

Many believe that Macron's win will help ease concerns about European politics.

And many clearly shared that view - particularly those on the left who vehemently opposed Le Pen but found Macron's plans to reduce corporate tax and cut public sector jobs unpalatable.

France's incoming president Emmanuel Macron has an ambitious economic agenda and a favourable economic environment and business leaders' backing in his favour - but can he bring change?

Macron's optimistically named "En Marche!". But it will be contesting its first ever election. Several voters told CNN they would back just about anyone to keep Le Pen from the presidency. Many in the ruling Parti Socialiste pledged their support to Macron - including former prime minister Manuel Valls - over their own party candidate, Benoit Hamon.

Mr Wahnicht described the hard exercise of synthesis that awaits the president-elect: "He must have socialist MPs in his parliamentary majority with a right-wing prime minister".

He also said the case was politically motivated, as it followed massive Wikileaks dumps of secret U.S. military reports that year. Julian Assange's lawyer is asking French president Emmanuel Macron to intervene in support of the WikiLeaks founder.

But if another party wins a majority, the new president could be pressured to choose a prime minister from that party, a situation the French call "cohabitation". But that is far from guaranteed.

Macron's task will be to show Le Pen's voters that he will follow through on promises to fundamentally reform the 28-nation bloc. Macron can't count on their loyalty.

In the first protest against his policies, several thousand people demonstrated in Paris, chanting "anti-capitalists" as they marched through the capital. Overnight Sunday, police arrested 141 people in eastern Paris in clashes with masked protesters.

Le Pen set a new challenge for herself in the weeks ahead to undertake "a profound reformation" of the movement into "a new political force". It will release its list of 577 candidates on Thursday. The National Front is also gearing up for a rebranding - if not a makeover - of its ideas. In interviews Monday, National Front officials said the party founded by her father would get a new name to try and draw in a broader spectrum of supporters.

More congratulations rolled in from world leaders. "In these circumstances, it is especially important to overcome mutual distrust and unite efforts to ensure global stability and security", he said. He added that he would also vote for Macron's party in the parliamentary election, "so that he can govern".

Market reaction Monday to Macron's victory was subdued: investors were expecting it and seem wary of the difficulties he faces. France's CAC 40 index, which last week touched the highest level since early 2008, slipped 0.8 percent to 5,391 on Monday.

Siri vs Google Assistant on the iPhone
Google Assistant can't tap into those features , although you can search for Apple Music songs and it will send you to that app. Altogether, unless you are deeply in the Google ecosystem, using Google Assistant on the iPhone is a pain compared to Siri.

The euro fell from six-month highs against the dollar on confirmation of Macron's widely expected victory by a margin of 66 percent to 34 percent.
