Trump to meet French President-elect Macron in May

"I understand the anger, the anxiety, the doubts that a great part among us have also expressed". But it will be contesting its first ever election.

The Kremlin has previously denied being behind media and internet attacks on Macron's campaign.

Macron, who will be inaugurated this Sunday, is now looking to use his popularity to win hundreds of seats for his fledgling party En Marche! in legislative elections, in little over a month from now.

"I know the country is divided and this has led to people voting for extremes", Macron said in the speech at his team's headquarters. "It is behind us", he said.

Although he won support, sometimes grudgingly, from the established Socialists and Republicans, much of it stemmed from the need to beat Ms Le Pen.

New members are flocking to French president-elect Emmanuel Macron's party as it prepares for the elections to the National Assembly in June - starting with a change in its name. "He stands for openness to the world", Merkel said in Berlin.

The vote - 66% for centrist Macron to 34% for Le Pen - proved a stronger victory than many analysts and polls had projected. Speaking to thousands of supporters from the Louvre Museum's courtyard, Macron said that France is facing an "immense task" to rebuild European unity, fix the economy and ensure security against extremist threats.

Without it, "we would not be able to operate in the area", he said. This is Mr Macron's second foreign trip as president.

If Macron is able to deliver tangible benefits to the people-from the factory worker in France's hinterlands to the young, unemployed Parisian-then perhaps he can bring about a new stability that will defend against hard-liners like Le Pen and Mélenchon.

"He has been reporting on the French election from the start and has had direct access to Macron and many on his team, making him perfectly positioned to get to the bottom of who Macron is, and what he might plausibly achieve as president of France".

The apparent French rejection of a far-right party has eased concern across Europe.

The results, Cardin said, sent the "strongest possible" message to Russian President Vladimir Putin that his worldview has once again been rejected by European voters. "Against this backdrop, overcoming mutual distrust and joining efforts to ensure worldwide stability and security is especially important". His rivals now will be motivated to keep Macron from making further gains during the two-round parliamentary election.

The German government has warned political parties to step up their defences against hacking after last week's leak of emails from Macron's campaign.

"Yesterday a new French president was elected".
