France election results - Emmanuel Macron beats Marine Le Pen

Emmanuel Macron has beaten Marine Le Pen in Sunday's French election and taken more than 66.1 per cent of the vote, according to poll results.
Polling conducted by Ipsos, Ifop and BVA all gave Mr Macron, the pro-business candidate, a strong lead over Front National leader Marine Le Pen.
It comes after a massive hacking attack on Mr Macron's campaign database over the weekend which saw hundreds of thousands of private emails and official documents dumped online.

France's polling agencies say that makes him the victor, and the next president of France. It is win of hope over fear mongering, win of progressive inclusive forces against forces of hatred, xenophobia, Islamophobia and division.

I welcome the poll results wholeheartedly.
