Emmanuel Macron laid out his vision for his new presidency during an inauguration ceremony on Saturday, in which he called on the French to support his efforts to roll back Russia and attacks on democracy.
The French President also urged citizens to work towards creating greater unity across the European Union and promote more social equality at home.
“The French people have opted for a clear and unambiguous project for the future. A Republican and European project. A project for independence in a destabilized world,” Macron told an audience in Paris on Saturday.
He said he was entrusted with “a new mandate, which will be decisive action for France and Europe, first of all to avoid any escalation following the Russian aggression in Ukraine and to have the courage to seek a new European peace and autonomy.” build up on our continent.”
The 44-year-old politician defeated his far-right rival, Marine Le Pen, with 58 percent of the vote in the second round of the French presidential election on April 25.

We will “act tirelessly with the aim of being a more independent nation, living better and developing French and European responses to the challenges of our century,” added Macron.
