“The near future will be a moment of decisive action for France and Europe.” With these words began the inauguration of the re-elected French leader Emmanuel Macron. The solemn ceremony at the Elysée Palace lasted an hour and a half and brought together some 450 guests, including senators, members of the government, former presidents Nicolas Sarkozy and Francois Hollande.

The celebration was not without shame. During the announcement of the number of votes obtained by Macron in the second round of the elections, the President of the Constitutional Council, Laurent Fabius, hesitated for a few seconds and instead of naming the figure of 18,768,639 votes, he mixed the numbers and announced a number less than 90 thousand – 18,678,639.

Emmanuel Macron’s ten-minute speech was remembered by many present and journalists alike because the verb “act” became his key word. Thus, the politician wanted to remember the confrontation with the challenges that he will have to face in the next five years. It is about what Paris has to do to prevent an escalation of the conflict in Ukraine, build a “full employment society”, turn France into a “great environmental power”, fight “inequality by restoring the education system and health “. , to achieve the progress of every Frenchman, “to work for the equality of men and women”.

Macron assured that he was willing to “act tirelessly” and, in particular, to dedicate himself to French children and young people.

“I promise to leave behind a more liveable planet and a more vibrant and strong France,” the French leader added.

At the end of the ceremony, according to tradition, 21 cannon shots were fired from the Palacio de los Invalides. To the sound of the Marseillaise, Emmanuel Macron left the Elysée Palace to review the troops.

Officially, the French president’s second term will begin at midnight on May 13.
