So you've seen the results.
Emmanuel Macron is elected with over 65 per cent of the vote.
-The National Front is at the highest... in its history. Around 35 per cent.
To a point that was not even imaginable a few years ago.
-Abstention is really high. 26 per cent. At the highest level for a second round of a presidential election since 1969. Same for the "vote blanc", blanked vote: about 4 millions.
-A lot of people have again been unable to vote because of administrative issues.
A few estimations in The Guardian:
Emmanuel Macron should come to power by the end of the week and choose a Prime Minister. Before the Parliamentary elections.
I'll be commenting on the results on the Canadia national radio, CBC, from noon Paris time, in their morning programmes. And before that, I'll be gathering reactions in the neighborhood of Chateau Rouge, Paris 18e, for the German national radio, Deutsche Welle.

Even for me, this becomes to be too much politics...
Next step: United Kingdom late May.
Before the French Parliamentary elections in June.
Wish me luck.
