Emmanuel Macron has beaten Marine Le Pen in Sunday’s French election and taken more than 60 percent of the vote, according to several early exit polls.
Polling conducted by Ipsos, Ifop and BVA all gave Mr. Macron, the pro-business candidate, a strong lead over Front National leader Marine Le Pen.
It comes after a massive hacking attack on Mr. Macron’s campaign database over the weekend which saw hundreds of thousands of private emails and official documents dumped online.
Le Pen was uninspiring the latest debate and undecided voters either sat the election out or voted for Macron.
Can Macron find support for his policies?
We will find out in the parliamentary elections on June 11 and June 18 in another two-round election.
