France's Hollande greets Macron in first meeting since victory

France's Hollande greets Macron in first meeting since victory

This accelerated procedure, bypassing parliament, could mean a fiery start to his term as France's highly activist unions would likely bring protests out onto the streets, as they did past year when Socialist Prime Minister Manuel Valls used the tactic.

One Macron adviser warning against a confrontational approach with Berlin is Sylvie Goulard, a German-speaking member of the European Parliament who is seen as a possible foreign minister.

The European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker, also congratulated president-elect Macron in a letter he posted on Twitter.

Trogneux went from being Macron's teacher to his partner, and eventually his wife.

Before she met Macron, she was on the path to living a relatively conventional life.

"Love took everything in its path and led me to divorce".

The CW announces 2017-18 fall schedule
Tuesday already saw a shakeup earlier this season when The CW moved Legends of Tomorrow to follow The Flash. This series will follow the lives of an elite unit of helicopter pilots called Shadow Raiders.


In 2015 she gave up her career to focus on her husband, who was at the time the country's economy minister.

Macron has delivered a rather serious first victory statement.

Trogneaux - now 64 with seven grandchildren - will become France's next first lady. But the French government warned both the media and citizens not to spread the hacked documents and abide by a traditional black-out ahead of the vote.

Last month, Macron said he will seek to renegotiate the Le Touquet agreement which allows British border checks to operate in Calais.

As the world waited to see the first speech from the newly-elected French leader, a live feed blunder instead broadcast vision of the 39-year-old in preparation.

He also promised to work to unify France after a bruising presidential campaign and serve the country "with love". "You have voted for unity over division, hope instead of fear".

Baahubali 2 eyeing two major milestones this weekend
Yesterday, the film earned more than Rs 25 crore, according to trade pundits, thereby bring the total to Rs 1,500-crore-plus. Alongside an image revealing the Hindi collection of the film in India, Karan tweeted: "The reigning film".


Whatever Le Pen's defeat means for populism's long-term future, Macron's victory can not disguise the fact that France remains a deeply-riven society on a number of issues and those divisions are not going to go away anytime soon. Macron also could play an important role in the process of strengthening the European Union, he argued.

His wife Brigitte then came up on stage with him, and she kissed his hand and waved to the crowd.

Although Le Pen was comprehensively beaten on Sunday, she may well re-emerge as a political threat to Macron and is young enough to run in several more presidential elections. "I know about our disagreements".

In another sign of discontent with the two candidates, a record number of four million voters cast blank or spoiled ballots.

Congratulatory messages poured in from overseas.

In a tweet, Trump says he's looking forward to working with Macron, but Trump did not immediately extend an invitation for him to visit the White House.
