Special edition: Macron beats Le Pen in French presidential election

In this special edition, we analyze the result of the French presidential election and its implications for France and for Europe.

The show features highlights from an election-night discussion with members of our French election crew, broadcast live on Twitter and hosted by POLITICO’s Andrew Gray.

Politics Reporter Clea Calcutt gives us the big picture, Elisa Braün reports from Emmanuel Macron’s victory rally in front of the Eiffel Tower and Giorgio Leali brings us reaction from the Le Pen camp. Chief Europe Correspondent Matt Karnitschnig joins us from Berlin to look at the repercussions for the EU and for transatlantic relations.
