Macron beats Le Pen to French Presidential seat.

Emmanuel Macron, the 39-year-old centrist whose insurgent independent candidacy took millions of his compatriots by surprise, was elected president of France on Sunday, defeating far-right leader Marine Le Pen  with a projected 65.1% of votes. Le Pen got 34.9%, according to projections.

This will be his first election into public office and will have to wait a month or two to know the fate of his policies in the parliamentary elections, where his party currently holds no seat.
