Will the feline Macron succeed?

By Francis Ghilès

“Enthusiasm for his victory is drawing investment into European
equities. And French private sector employment has just reached a post-crisis
high, giving a boost to wages.”

Laurent Berger, Secretary General of the CFDT, France’s biggest union. Wikicommons/ Info-Com CFDT. Some rights reserved.“He’s a cat – you throw him through the window and he manages to fall on

which France was a founding member, neither the Socialist nor the Républicain
party inspired much confidence among the voters.

Was the election a case of man meeting destiny or a particular set of
circumstances allowing one exceptional figure to emerge? That Nicolas Sarkozy,
Alain Juppé, François Fillon, François Hollande and Manuel Valls all fell on their
sword offered an irresistible opening which, to a degree, was impossible to
foresee. When he launched his movement En Marche less than 18 months ago,
resigned from the government the following summer and announced he would stand
as candidate for the French presidency, Emmanuel Macron was derided by the vast
majority of commentators and heavyweight politicians. His election vindicates
the judgement of French observers who were convinced their fellow countrymen
would avoid following in the populist footsteps of British and American voters.

They were reassured on the night Macron debated his extreme right wing
opponent Marine Le Pen on French television in the run off to the second round.
