    Emmanuel Macron claims that France is facing task of strengthening economy, democracy, security.

    In his speech outside louvre, French centrist Emmanuel Macron said that France is facing task of strengthening economy, democracy and security.

    He also thanked his supporters and vowed to live up all the presidential campaign promises.

    "Thank you for your trust… This trust obliges me, and from now on I am its guardian in order not to disappoint you and to correspond to it," Macron said.

    Macron said that he would make every effort to eliminate any reason for French people to vote for extremist politicians. "I will make everything so that there was no reason to vote for the extremists," Macron said in his speech.

    France should build its own future to get what it deserves, he said and promised to fight lies, inequity and to respect all and everyone.
