"Macron’s victory represents the eagerness of the French people to defend freedom, equality, and fraternity," Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) stated and thanked the left-wing legislator Jean-Luc Melenchon's calls to not back Le Pen.
While acknowledging Argentina’s commitment to strengthening multilateralism, President Alberto Fernandez remarked that Macron’s policy proposals to fight social inequities are consistent.

In the French electoral process, abstention raised to 27 percent for the first time since 1969 and the ballot margin difference was about 16 percent, which represents half the difference Macron obtained five years ago in his first run-off elections with Le Pen.
“I will help French citizens regain confidence in their leaders and in themselves and be a President for all my people,” Macron promised, stressing that he will address the concerns of citizens who voted for Le Pen.
