Emmanuel Macron will return to the Elysee Palace for another five years after winning his second consecutive French Presidential Election against far-right candidate Marine Le Pen.
Mr Macron is projected to have won the 2022 contest with 58.8 percent of the vote compared to 41.2 percent for the National Rally leader, according to IPSOS.
However, while supporters of the French President celebrated his triumph at Macron’s victory speech in Paris, his opponents have already taken to the streets to voice their disappointment.
One clip circulating on social media even appears to show protesters making a “savage” chant about the French President.
The crowd, who have been gathering in numbers for some time, can be heard shouting in French: “Louis XVI, Louis XVI, we beheaded him, Macron, Macron we can start again.”
Louis XVI, who was the last King of France before being overthrown during the French Revolution, was executed by guillotine in 1793.
