Emmanuel Macron has won five more years as France’s president with 58.8% of the vote.
His far-right challenger Marine Le Pen won 41.2% of the vote.
“Many in this country voted for me not because they support my ideas but to keep out those of the far right. I want to thank them and know I owe them a debt in the years to come,” Macron said in his late-night speech.
“We will have to be benevolent and respectful because our country is riddled with so many doubts, so many divisions.”
