Emmanuel Macron inaugurated as France’s President for 2nd term, calls it ‘new’ term

Emmanuel Macron the current president of France recently won a second term, last month. This is quite a rare occurrence in the nation. On Saturday, he was sworn in at a ceremony that took place at Elysee Palace. There were about 500 guests including former presidents François Hollande and Nicolas Sarkozy. Four former prime ministers, religious leaders, state figures and others were present at the swearing-in ceremony. Macron, in French style?, winked at his wife, Brigitte Macron, after arriving at the reception hall of Elysee.

In a short but decisive speech Macron said that action would be taken to make France “a more independent nation” where its people would have better lives. He said that they would build French and European responses to the challenges of the century.


He spoke of a “fair method” to govern the country. He said that the government would work with unions, associations and other people in France who belonged to the “political, economic, social and cultural worlds.”

He also said that his one compass was serving the country, fellow citizens, children and youth. He said that he pledged to “hand down a more liveable planet and a more living and stronger France.”


After his speech, he went to the Elysee Palace gardens and heard the firing of 21 cannon shots from the Invalides plaza. This is an traditional event that marks the inauguration of a president in France. He also inspected the troops who ware present at the ceremony including part of the crew who are essential for the nation’s nuclear preparedness.


Macron second term starts on May 14. He might face a bigger challenge, in June when legislative elections will take place. A united political left has emerged that is hoping to prevent him from getting a majority in Parliament. The coalition consists of parties such as La France Insoumise, the Parti Socialiste, the Greens and the Communist Party. There are 577 seats at the National Assembly.
