French President Francois Hollande warmly greeted Emmanuel Macron on Monday in their first public meeting since the centrist's resounding election victory the day before.
The president walked beside the 39-year-old Macron to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the monument, where they laid a wreath.
Hollande plucked Macron from obscurity three years ago when he named the former investment banker his economy minister, marking the start of his meteoric rise to Sunday's electoral victory over far-right leader Marine Le Pen.
Final results from the interior ministry out Monday showed Macron -- who will be France's youngest ever president -- won 66.1 percent of the vote against 33.9 percent for Le Pen.Last Mod: 08 Mayıs 2017, 15:09
