Emmanuel Macron

Emmanuel Macron, France's recently elected President, is the founder and leader of the independent party called En Marche! (Onwards). He won 66.1 per cent votes against his far-right political opponent, the National Front leader, Marine Le Pen. En Marche, a party still in its infancy (a year old), was formed in April 2016. This is the first time Macron, a centrist maverick, has won an elected office. Macron, who was once an investment banker, began his political career at outgoing President Francois Hollande's Socialist Party (PS). In 2012, he became the deputy secretary-general under Hollande's government, and was later appointed as the Minister of Economy, Industry and Digital Affairs in 2014.
