Independent centrist Emmanuel Macron will be the 25th president of France having beaten the far-right National Party's Marine Le Pen in the final round of the election on Sunday evening, according to exit polls.

In his first speech following the poll results, Macron cried "let's love France" to supporters gathered at his headquarters, maintaining he would prioritize tackling issues related to the economy, social fracturing and moral weakening.

Le Pen conceded defeat in a telephone call shortly after 8 p.m. local time, according to an aide to the defeated candidate. In a subsequent speech at her campaign headquarters, Le Pen called on "all patriots to join" in a new movement as she characterized the landscape as one split between "patriots and globalists".

The National Front party's deputy leader Florian Philippot added that the new party would no longer retain the same name, according to Reuters.

Macron secured 65.5 percent of the vote versus the 34.5 percent won by Le Pen, according to initial projections from both IFOP and Kantar-Sofres. A similar projection published by Harris Interactive gave Macron 66.1 percent of the vote versus 33.9 percent for Le Pen.

Voter turnout was recorded at 65.30 percent as of 5:00 p.m. local time, according to an official statement from the Interior Ministry. That figure compares to 71.96 percent at the same time during the last election in 2012 and 75.11 percent in 2007.

The euro initially responded positively to the widely anticipated result with the single currency up by just over a third of a percent to $1.1035 at around 7:30 p.m. London time, ahead of the start of Asia trade. Once markets opened at 8 p.m. London time, the euro slipped back to trade only 0.10 percent higher at $1.1006 before edging up to $1.1018 by 9:10 p.m. London time.

The currency could have further upside ahead, according to Vasileios Gkionakis, head of global FX strategy at Unicredit.

"From now on what really matters is that the political risk premia have declined and this will allow the market to start focusing on a number of fundamental developments and I think these are positive on the euro," Gkionakis told CNBC on Sunday evening.

At 39-years old, Macron is set to be the youngest ever French president with his victory being interpreted as a boost for European cooperation, a concept of which he is a fervent advocate.

He is expected to push for a harder line on behalf of the European Union as the U.K. negotiates its exit from the trading bloc. On the other hand, while on the campaign trail, losing candidate Le Pen had advocated abandoning the euro currency used within the EU as well as closing the Union's open borders.

Following Macron's victory, Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, said that he was "delighted" that Macron would defend the idea of a strong and progressive Europe while a spokesperson for German Chancellor Angela Merkel described the win as a "victory for a strong united Europe."

A spokesperson for Macron's En Marche movement claimed on Friday to have been aggressively hit by a "massive and co-ordinated" anonymous hacking operation which had resulted in 9 gigabytes' worth of emails and financial data being posted online to a document sharing site called Pastebin.

This came at the tail end of a dramatic campaigning period that has seen a series of scandals, demonstrations and vicious rhetoric shake news and markets.

France has a population of around 64.89 million people, according to the latest estimates from the United Nations, with approximately 47 million eligible to vote in Sunday's election.

Macron win brings cheer; Indonesia hits record high

(May 8): Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Monday as investors breathed a sigh of relief after Emmanuel Macron won the French presidential election, while better-than-expected Indonesian economic growth lifted the market to a record high.

Macron was elected French President on Sunday, washing the global markets and particularly European allies with relief, as the independent centrist favours keeping the country in the European Union.

The win also averts another populist upheaval to follow Britain's move to quit the EU.

Wall Street which rose on Friday after the rebound in US job growth data is expected to extend gains with S&P 500 expected to push into record territory when trading reopens.

"The strength in the emerging market comes from the combination of the French elections as well as the US jobs data," said Taye Shim, head of research at Jakarta-based Mirae Asset Sekuritas.

"Stronger-than-expected growth in Indonesia is clear evidence that emerging markets are doing very well than the developed markets."

Asia's refined fuel consumption is poised to grow 2.1% annually through 2021 against a global average of 1.4%, BMI Research analysts wrote, with the bulk of growth occurring in emerging markets including Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Jakarta SE Composite Index gained as much as 0.8%, after Indonesia's central bank reported better-than-expected annual growth of 5.01% in Jan-March on Friday.

Financials led gains in Indonesia, with PT Bank Mitraniaga Tbk rising over 34% as the top gainer on the benchmark.

Philippine shares advanced as much as 1% to its highest in 8 months, with industrials dominating gains on the benchmark.

Conglomerate SM Investments, the top gainer, rose over 5% to hit an all-time high, followed by Security Bank Corp up over 2%.

Malaysia rose as much as 0.2%, with financial stocks including Maybank Banking Bhd and RHB Bank, both up nearly a percent, leading gains.

"Emerging markets are benefiting the most from the global economy recovering cycle. The market will be on cruise control unless any signs of derailment such as geopolitical risks arising from the euro zone," said Shim. 

Singapore fell slightly, while trading was choppy in Thailand.

马克龙胜选利多已反应.欧元转跌未来上行有限
法国总统大选结果出炉,温和派的前投资银行家马克龙胜选,欧元一度飙上六个月高点,但是涨幅随后回吐,走势由升转跌。

(法国.巴黎8日讯)法国总统大选结果出炉,温和派的前投资银行家马克龙胜选,欧元一度飙上六个月高点,但是涨幅随后回吐,走势由升转跌。

亚洲早盘,欧元兑美元一度升至1.1023,为2016年11月9日以来盘中新高。不过午盘转跌,贬值0.21%、报1.0972。

马克龙在7日大选中,赢得65.5%选票,马克龙大胜,欧元却涨幅有限,ThinkMarkets资深市场分析师辛普森解释说,这是由于各方早已预期此一结果,价格已提前反应。他说,本次欧元涨势不及4月23日法国总统大选的首轮投票过后,当时欧元兑美元从1.07升至1.09。

分析师多认为欧元利多出尽,市场虽然平掉欧元空单,但是也没有理由买进多单,未来应该不会新的利多,欧元上行空间有限。

亚股上扬庆贺

美国商品期货交易委员会(CFTC)统计显示,截至2017年5月2日为止当周欧元净空单自前一周的20,895宗暴减92.1%至1,653宗、创2014年5月初以来。美元整体净多单部位自前一周的152.9亿美元降至127.0亿美元、创7个月以来新低。

随着马克龙在法国大选中胜出,亚股周一多数走高,因危机解除而上扬庆贺。

市场关注点
从政风险转经济增长

马克龙胜选后,随着政治担忧消退,投资者关注欧元区经济复苏,马克龙的胜选给一系列令人担忧的欧洲选举画上了句号。在欧元区最近公布了好于美国的日益强劲经济数据之际,这种担忧使欧元在相当长时间内表现疲弱。

随着不确定性消除以及经济表现良好,欧中行更有可能缩减庞大的刺激计划。欧中行的刺激计划一定程度上令欧元承压。

荷兰合作银行高级外汇策略师伊恩称,民粹主义目前已不是最关注的问题,未来六、八、九个月,关注点将更多地从政治向经济转移。她预测欧元兑美元年底将约为1.10美元。

欧股士气大振

富达欧股研究团队投资组合经理人指出,对股票市场来说,市场前景是清晰的,基本面再次领军。近几星期以来,资金已经恢复流入并支持欧洲股市。

他说明,法国的企业获利有望从马克龙的经济措施受惠以达到10%的成长,这些措施包括新的减税措施,以及计划将目前暂时性的社会税收减免转换为永久性的低利率措施。马克龙还计划在未来5年内增加500亿欧元的投资,这将有利于能源、建筑和资讯科技行业。

此外若马克龙落实在其新政运动中所宣布的减少(全部出售)国家在Orange所持有股份的决定,电讯业可能会出现新的整合。

法国“风流”新内阁
多名成员曾写情色小说

 多名新内阁成员曾写情色小说。
多名新内阁成员曾写情色小说。

(综合报道)法国总统马克龙上周任命新一届的内阁,赞扬他们多才多艺,不过有媒体指部分成员亦有不为公众所知的才华,就是写作情色小说。

据指与马克龙同校出身的总理菲利普(Edouard Philippe)曾与其他人在2011年共同撰写政治小说,故事中讲述到男主角对情妇的一番叙述,“她不是那种会把身体向前倾的人,不过她下垂的领口是如此迷人……我看了一眼她的右乳。”

无独有偶,经济部长勒迈尔(Bruno Le Maire)亦是同道中人,他在20多岁时曾以笔名“Duc William”写作情色小说,故事主要围绕一名多情护士,不过勒迈尔一直把它收藏起来。

而新任性别平等部长斯基亚帕(Marlène Schiappa)亦在2010年写下有关大量女人的情色小说,引起不少女士反感,批评内容伪装成女性主义,只是透过满足男性欢愉的角度看待女人,认为是性别歧视及侮辱。

Most French now dissatisfied with Macron, poll shows

image: http://www.thestar.com.my/~/media/online/2017/08/26/22/15/20170826t220917z_1_lynxnped7p0mx_rtroptp_4_francecentraleurope.ashx/?w=620&h=413&crop=1&hash=253E84A50A8B62BBCE581544602B33E4FAAC9461


 
PARIS (Reuters) - Most French voters are now dissatisfied with Emmanuel Macron's performance, a poll showed on Sunday, marking a dramatic turnaround for a president who basked in a landslide election victory less than four months ago.

The poll, conducted by Ifop for newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche (JDD) showed Macron's dissatisfaction rating at 57 percent, 14 percentage points worse than Ifop's last poll in July.

Forty percent expressed satisfaction with the centrist leader - also down 14 points from July.

Macron, who is midway through a schedule of official visits to various European capitals, has suffered a number of setbacks since being elected, including tough debates in parliament over labour reform, a standoff with the military and cuts to housing assistance.

The Ifop poll showed the cumulative drop in Macron's popularity ratings since May was bigger than that of previous president Francois Hollande over the same period of his tenure.

The poll also showed a drop in popularity for Prime Minister Edouard Philippe, with 47 percent expressing satisfaction with him - down 9 points from last month.
