France’s Macron takes charge, undertakes to mend division and restore global status

France’s Macron takes charge, undertakes to mend division and restore global status: On Sunday, 14th May 2017, Emmanuel Macron assumed power as the president of France and, during his first speech, vowed to restore the eroding status of his country not only in Europe but also the world. He also undertook to take necessary corrective measures to cure the divisions in society that resulted from the election campaign in which he defeated the National Front’s Marine Le Pen in a May 7 run-off vote.

Emmanuel Macron said in his speech that “The division and fractures in our society must be overcome. I know that the French expect much from me. Nothing will make me stop defending the higher interests of France and from working to reconcile the French,”.

In spite of Emmanuel Macron’s victory over Le Pen was without any trouble, almost half of France’s 47 million voters chose candidates with views opposed to Macron’s in the first round of the election.

It is widely assumed in France that the people feel dispossessed by globalisation, as manufacturing jobs move abroad, and as immigration and a fast-changing world blur their sense of a French identity.

Much to the comfort of European integrationist, unlike Le Pen and other leadership candidates, Macron further declared: “The world and Europe need more than ever France, and a strong France, which speaks out loudly for freedom and solidarity.”

The 39-year-old Emmanuel Macron, a former investment banker and relatively was unknown to the wider public some years ago and whose May 7 election marked a sudden rise to power and popularity, started his journey as a leader of the world’s fifth-largest economy during a solemn Elysee Palace ceremony.

For the purpose of better ties with Germany, Macron is set to meet Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin today, Monday. He will bring home the message that the European Union is resilient despite Britain’s vote to leave and a spate of financial and migration crises that have boosted the far right.
