French presidential candidate, Emanuel Macron took the first place in the first round of the French Presidential Election on Sunday.

Data from the French Interior Ministry showed that Emanuel Macron secured his lead from his main rival, Marine Le Pen, gaining 23.75% of the votes, while the far-right National Front Leader has the support 21.53% of the French voters.

Popular center-right Republican, Francois Fillon (19.91%) and left-wing Jean-Luc Melenchon (19.64%) lost their bids for the upcoming decisive elections on May 7, 2017 in France.

As the voting ended and the polling stations across France closed, the French media were prohibited by law from publishing any preliminary results until the last polling stations were closed.

According to Fox News, the results of the French preliminary elections could have had a potential impact on global markets, if Marine Le Pen would have won, on the suggestion that France could possibly leave the European Union (EU). 

In an attempt to trash Le Pen’s exposure, French prosecutors have already asked the EU-Parliament to lift the immunity of Eurosceptic presidential candidate Marine Le pen.

Emanuel Macron is a 39-year-old former Rothschild investment-banker and economy minister, presenting the current favorite in the election, according to Yahoo staff writer, Gabby Kaufman. Macron’s previously divorced wife with three children, Brigitte Trogneux, has blond hair, with a warm smile and married him in 2007.

Macron, also dubbed as “chouchou” or teacher’s pet, is running under the banner of “En Marche!” movement, which he founded in 2016, after leaving the Socialist Party in an attempt to double cross Le Pen and take away the French election.

The pro-EU, ex-banker Macron, have the back up from defeated Socialist candidate, Benoit Hamon, Socialist PM Bernard Cazeneuve, and defeated right-wing candidate Francois Fillon are vowed their supporters to rally behind Bilderberg puppet Macron in the second round.
