Centrist Emmanuel Macron is set to become France’s youngest president after the latest exit polls suggest he has won 62 per cent of the vote in a tense election which could decide the future of Europe. According to Belgian exit polls, former banker Macron, 39, has secured a landslide victory as voters are believed to have rejected Marine Le Pen’s populist vision of France. If the latest polls are correct, it would be a special victory given Macron’s new party En Marche! ‘On the Move’ has existed for just more than a year.
