Le Pen sees French presidential vote 'surprise'

German Foreign Minister Sigmar endorsed Marcon saying, "I am sure that he will be the next French president".

Mr Fillon and Socialist Benoît Hamon both urged their supporters to vote for Mr Macron.

"It makes me a bit sad that Marine Le Pen got through", said a voter named Stephane, who preferred not to give his last name.

They are concerned French voters will take Macron's victory for granted and stay home on election day.

She had previously said she is not a candidate of her party and the policy platform she stood was hers and not reflective of the Front National.

Prediction recap: Caps unable to defeat depleted Penguins
As I said, the Pittsburgh Penguins have played without a number of players all year and you were going to get their best game. The second came when Jake Guentzel banked the puck off the skate of an unsuspecting Dmitry Orlov and into the net.

She added, "So I am afraid I didn't define Emmanuel as ... the hope of a generation but the fact of seeing European and French flags together".

European stock markets surged, and France's main index hit its highest level since early 2008, as investors gambled that the rise of populism around the world - and its associated unpredictability in policymaking - may have peaked.

Aside from the French elections being closely watched by the world to see if it continues the populist movement that emerged with Trump's election in the USA and Britain's exit from the European Union, it should be followed by our own Filipino leaders as a great example of the play of basic issues in an election - rather than the largely personal contest that Philippine elections have become. "He is a hysterical, radical 'Europeanist.' He is for total open borders".

Le Pen, best described as a national socialist, would like to take France out of global institutions, including both the European Union and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation; block borders; curtail trade; and impose quasi-Marxist state-dominated economics. Since then, she has been working on softening the party's image by targeting widespread support of the young and the workers.

"She's been in the political system for 30 years". The percentage of under-35 voters to have left school without a diploma has a heavy 60 percent correlation to Le Pen's scores.

Brazil leads unchanged top 20 Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings
Maradona's visit is expected to build enthusiasm for the U-17 World Cup, which India is hosting for the first time this October. This rise in their rankings makes India the 11 highest ranked team in Asia.

The leader of the Social Democrats, Martin Schulz, who will be his party's candidate for the chancellorship at elections in September, said he was "very happy that a proven pro-European" had won. "So she is in a truly bad position to be talking about the elites". There is a part of the old left, including those who voted for the Trotskyist, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who sympathise with her objections to trade, bankers and worldwide business; there is a part of the old right, including those who voted for François Fillon, who prefer her ostentatious endorsement of "traditional values".

Stock markets across Europe shot up Monday after pro-business outsider Macron reached pole position in the first round of presidential voting in France, quieting fears that the continent s second-largest economy could quit the European Union and the euro single currency.

Turnout was 78 per cent, down slightly from the 79 per cent turnout in the first round of presidential voting in 2012. "The center is stronger than the populists think!"

Protesters angry over the results burned cars, danced around bonfires and dodged riot police overnight at the Place de la Bastille and Republique in Paris.
