At 39 years old, Emmanuel Macron is about to become the youngest president in France’s modern history. The centrist beat the far-right candidate Marine Le Pen in the country’s presidential election runoff. In his speech at the Louvre, Macron told supporters the country will not yield to fear or division. Macron touched on rebuilding France’s economy and ensuring security. He also talked about fortifying France’s ties with the European Union. Macron does not belong to any of the traditional establishment parties.
Meanwhile, Le Pen garnered nearby 11 million votes, apparently reflecting people’s dissatisfaction with the EU and France’s immigration policies. Macron served as economy minister under President Francois Hollande and has promoted free trade. That aroused some suspicion among workers and young people. There were number of protests in at least eight cities, including Paris.
Moon Jae-in is the new president of South Korea. He’s liberal and leader of the Democratic Party. The result ends a decade of conservative governance in the country. South Korean say they are watching for change.
