According to reports reaching oyogist.com, french President Emmanuel Macron has defeated his far-right rival Marine Le Pen by a comfortable margin in a runoff election and has won a second term in office.

Early projections showed centrist Macron securing around 57-58 percent of the vote in Sunday’s runoff.

Such estimates are normally accurate, but may be fine-tuned as official results come in from around the country.

In a victory speech on Sunday evening, Macron said a simple “thank you!” and praised the majority who gave him five more years at the helm of France.

He arrived on the plaza where his supporters gathered, beneath the Eiffel Tower, to the sound of the Ode to Joy, the European Union’s anthem, hand in hand with his wife, Brigitte.

Macron also thanked people who voted for him not because they embrace his ideas but because they wanted to reject Le Pen.
