(French presidential race) Macron faithful delightedWorld | 24 Apr 2017 9:54 am
Emmanuel Macron supporters, (pictured), at his election-day headquarters went wild as polling agency projections showed the ex-finance minister making the runoff, cheering, singing "La Marseillaise'' anthem, waving French tricolor and European flags and shouting "Macron, president!''
Mathilde Jullien, 23, said she is convinced Macron will beat Le Pen.
"He represents France's future, a future within Europe,'' she said. "He will win because he is able to unite people from the right and the left against the threat of the National Front and he proposes real solutions for France's economy.'' -AP
