Richard Verber, Senior Vice President of the Board of Deputies, said:

“We congratulate Emmanuel Macron on his clear victory in the French Presidential election. While the far right did alarmingly well in this election, it is a relief to see the force with which the French people have rejected the politics of division and despair. With legislative elections still to come, there is certainly no room for complacency. We wish Mr Macron and the French people every success in building an inclusive, successful and secure country.”
