EMMANUEL MACRON will face Marine Le Pen in the second round French presidential election, according to projections.
Macron, is an independent centrist, and the youngest potential president ever.
Le Pen’s right-wing Front National continues it’s steady rise in France since she took over from her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, in 2011 and aims to take the country out of the EU.
