The second round of the French Presidential election was concluded in the small hours of Monday morning (NZT) and has proven to be a victory for Emmanuel Macron, of the centre-left En Marche! Party.
- The French election resulted in defeat for the Euro-sceptic Le Pen, mirroring the Dutch result from March.
- Next up is the UK, on June 8, which is likely to result in a greater majority for PM May’s Conservative Party.
- Further out, the NZ and German elections both carry a degree of uncertainty.
