François Hollande congratulates French President-elect
7 May 2017
This evening I called Emmanuel Macron to congratulate him warmly on his election as President of the Republic.
His sizeable victory confirms that a very large majority of our fellow citizens wanted to come together around the values of the Republic and signal their commitment both to the European Union and to France’s openness to the world.
I expressed to him all my wishes of success for our country, because the major challenge is to bring people together and build, in order to continue France’s path towards progress and social justice./.
