USA stocks surge, Nasdaq hits record on French vote result

(In Motion!) to prepare his presidential bid as an independent centrist candidate.

"In two weeks, I want to become your president, the president of all the people of France".

Investors were concerned a victory for Le Pen could put France on the path taken by Britain to leave the European Union. French voters would be wise to make Macron - the more sensible, centrist candidate - their nation's next president.

While untested in office and a relatively young 39 years old, Macron offers hope that France can revitalize internally and collaborate externally to deal directly with the multiple crises convulsing the continent.

"We must help him (Macron) as much as we can to ensure Le Pen is kept as low down as possible", Valls said on France Inter radio.

Emmanuel Macron told his supporters: "In one year, we have changed the face of French politics".

Frontrunners Le Pen, Macron on offensive as French presidency race tightens
One of them, Francois Asselineau, said he was the "only true candidate of Frexit", the word coined to refer to a French EU exit. At the time of writing, Emmanuel Macron is edging ahead in polling for the first round of voting.

France, Gabriel said, "is a large European nation without which we can not shape Europe".

European markets soared as did the euro on Monday, something analysts attribute to relief the race will be between a moderate and a candidate of the extreme.

Ahead of Sunday's vote, markets had been contemplating a variety of nightmare scenarios for them, including one in which Le Pen would go through to a runoff against the far left's Jean-Luc Melenchon.

"You responded in the most handsome way, by going to vote in masses".

Le Pen, 48, has touted her pledges to suspend the EU's open-border agreement on France's frontiers, and to expel foreigners who are on the watch lists of intelligence services, as the right response to a series of Islamist attacks in France.

France's first round in its presidential election on Sunday resulted in the rejection of the long-established political order as outsiders Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen advanced to the May 7 runoff. (Onwards!) Emmanuel Macron, right, are seen in Antibes, France, April 14, 2017.

Adrian Peterson Closing In On New Deal

Macron will have to convince voters that he does not represent an extension of the policies of unpopular outgoing Socialist President Francois Hollande, despite the past close ties between the two men.

Marine Le Pen has denounced these remarks and worked to broaden her party's appeal.

"That was disdainful towards the French people", Phillipot said.

"There's the same feeling I heard in the United States at time of its election", Camus told VOA.

Nonetheless, supporters at the National Front's headquarters responded to the results with songs and dance through the night, waving Le Pen flags.

"She's been in the political system for 30 years", he said.
