French election: Le Pen pledges to keep fighting Macron following defeat

Global News published this video item, entitled “French election: Le Pen pledges to keep fighting Macron following defeat” – below is their description.

French far-right leader Marine Le Pen said on Sunday that she would keep up the political fight against President Emmanuel Macron in the run-up to June parliamentary elections, as she conceded defeat to the incumbent in France’s presidential election.

“The French are showing tonight a wish for a strong counter-power against that of Emmanuel Macron, for an opposition that will continue to defend and protect them,” she told supporters after early projections indicated she had lost the election.

Macron defeated Le Pen by a comfortable margin, securing a second term and heading off what would have been a political earthquake.

The first pollsters’ projections showed Macron securing around 57-58 per cent of the vote.

Such estimates are normally accurate but may be fine-tuned as official results come in from around the country throughout the evening.

In This Story: Vote

Voting is a method for a group, such as a meeting or an electorate, in order to make a collective decision or express an opinion usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns. Democracies elect holders of high office by voting. Residents of a place represented by an elected official are called “constituents”, and those constituents who cast a ballot for their chosen candidate are called “voters”. There are different systems for collecting votes, but while many of the systems used in decision-making can also be used as electoral systems, any which cater for proportional representation can only be used in elections.

In smaller organizations, voting can occur in different ways. Formally via ballot to elect others for example within a workplace, to elect members of political associations or to choose roles for others. Informally voting could occur as a spoken agreement or as a verbal gesture like a raised hand or electronically.
