"So far more than 19 million votes have been counted, which is about about 50 percent. The results are as follows: Mr. Emmanuel Macron got 9.8 million votes, or 61.7 percent, Mme. Marine Le Pen got 6 million votes or 38.3 percent. The victory of Mr. Macron is obvious," French Interior Minister Mattias Fekl said earlier.
