More of France turns a shade of Marine blue

aptopix france presidential election 73505

Emmanuel Macron was reelected as president of France on Sunday, but his far-right rival Marine Le Pen made a strong push across large swathes of the country.

The National Rally candidate led in more than 18,000 of the 35,000 mainland French communes, albeit mostly in sparsely populated, rural areas, while Macron won the big cities and generally did better in densely populated areas, winning 58.5 percent of the vote overall.

Le Pen polled well in her traditional strongholds in northeastern France and in the southeast, as well as in French overseas territories. She also made gains in the traditionally more left-leaning southwest of the country, taking several of the larger administrative districts known as départements.
