“After five years of happy transformation and difficult challenges, this day, a majority amongst us chose to trust me to pilot the republic for the next five years.

“I want to thank all of the French people, who at the first and second rounds of the presidential election, placed their trust in me so together we can undertake our project to make France more independent, Europe stronger, and through investments and changes, continue to implement change that is relevant for everyone by freeing creativity and innovation in our country and making France a great, green nation.”
Le Pen also delivered a speech conceding defeat, while also celebrating her “historic score” in the vote.
“A great wind of freedom could have blown over our country; the fate of the ballot box wanted otherwise. The results of tonight represent a shining victory,” she said.
“In this defeat, I can’t help but feel a form of hope. This result constitutes for our French leaders as for the European leaders the testimony of a great mistrust of the French people towards them which they cannot ignore and that of the widely shared aspiration of a great change.”
