Macron Takes Office As French President

Emmanuel Macron has been inaugurated as France's president, and will immediately face daunting challenges to rejuvenate the economy and breathe new life into the beleaguered European Union.

Macron, a 39-year-old centrist, took over today from President Francois Hollande, the socialist whose five years in power were plagued by stubborn unemployment and attacks.

Macron - France's youngest ever president - beat his far-right rival Marine Le Pen to the presidency, winning more than 65 percent of the vote on May 7. We say big congrats to him. You know we support young people ruling the world!!!!
