Five reasons why Macron won the French election

马克龙入主香榭丽舍宫的5大理由_英语新闻报道

  Emmanuel Macron has triggered a political earthquake in French politics.

  A year ago, he was a member of the government of one of the most unpopular French presidents in history.

  Now, at 39, he has won France’s presidential election.

  He got lucky

  No doubt about it, Mr Macron was carried to victory in part by the winds of fortune.

  "He was very lucky, because he was facing a situation that was completely unexpected," says Marc-Olivier Padis, of Paris-based think tank Terra Nova.

  He was canny

  Luck doesn’t tell the whole story.

  Mr Macron could have gone for the Socialist ticket, but he realised after years in power and dismal public approval ratings the party’s voice would always struggle to be heard.

  "He was able to foresee there was an opportunity when nobody could," says Mr Padis.

  He tried something new in France

  He had a positive message

  Mr Macron’s political persona appears beset with contradictions.

  The "newcomer" who was President Hollande’s protege and then economy minister; the ex-investment banker running a grassroots movement; the centrist with a radical programme to slash the public sector.

  It was perfect ammunition for run-off rival Marine Le Pen, who said he was the candidate of the elite, not the novice he said he was.

  But he dodged attempts to label him as another Fran?ois Hollande, creating a profile that resonated among people desperate for something new.

  He was up against Marine Le Pen

  Up against his more optimistic tone, Marine Le Pen’s message came across as negative - anti-immigration, anti-EU, anti-system.

  Macron campaign rallies featured brightly lit arenas blaring with pop music, says Emily Schultheis, while Marine Le Pen’s mass meetings involved protesters throwing bottles.
