Prime minister Theresa May has appealed to voters to grant her mandate just as strong as that handed to French President-elect Emmanuel Macron yesterday.
According to di Borgo, Le Pen showed herself to be "a very bad candidate during the May 3 debates against Macron", as she went from 42 percent of prospective votes before the debates to the 33.9 that she ended up gaining on Sunday. He clinched 18 percent of the vote in the 2002 presidential elections - the first time that National Front made it to the final round.
Pro European centrist leader Emmanuel Macron was elected as President of France last week.
Emmanuel Macron's ascent to the French presidency caps a stunning rise for the political newcomer but he now faces another battle to form a parliamentary majority, with his rivals already plotting revenge in June's general election.
The transfer of power to Macron will take place Sunday, outgoing President Francois Hollande announced.
The 39-year old former investment banker, who has never held elected office, became the youngest President and occupant of the Élysee Palace.
At Monday's ceremony on the Champs-Elysees, Mr Hollande approached Mr Macron and gripped him by the shoulder before the two men walked beneath the Arc de Triomphe.
Arabs have a lot to say after Trump's meeting with Palestine's president
Abbas has been in power since 2005, and new elections were blocked partly because of a rivalry with the Hamas militant group. USA officials had said Mr Trump would press Mr Abbas to end payments to families of Palestinians in Israeli jails.
Monday also marked decades of peace in Western Europe, something Macron highlighted in his campaign against Le Pen.
He spoke with "the French president-elect to congratulate him on his victory", White House spokesman Sean Spicer said. Le Pen campaigned for France to leave the 28-nation European Union and drop the shared euro currency in favor of reinstating a new French franc.
Sylvie Goulard, a French deputy to the European Parliament, said Mr Macron would make Berlin his first official visit, with perhaps a stop to see French troops stationed overseas as well.
Macron's biggest challenge however is likely to come from the conservative Republicans, still smarting from defeat in a presidential election that was theirs for the taking before their candidate Francois Fillon became embroiled in an expenses scandal.
Le Pen says she will lead the opposition to Macron.
The scant coverage from mostly French-language media estimated that the demonstrators calling for Macron's resignation numbered in the thousands.
Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt, the president of the Conference of European Rabbis, said in a statement that while Macron's election is "extremely encouraging", his group is "concerned that a third of the French population voted for a risky political leader".
