New members are flocking to French President-elect Emmanuel Macron's party as it prepares for the elections to the National Assembly next month - starting with a change in its name.
Le Gal tweeted that 96.3 percent of French Israelis who cast their ballots in the cities of Tel Aviv, Netanya, Haifa, Ashdod, Eilat and Be'er Sheva opted for Macron, who went on to win with 64 percent of the total vote against far-right candidate Marine Le Pen.
The European Union, for its part, has been witnessing severe divisions and a major identity crisis, which was mainly incited by the exit of Britain.
Le Pen says she will lead the opposition to Macron. Certainly this is a step in the right direction for a united, inclusive Europe. While Mr. Macron won a decisive victory over Le Pen, it is important to note that Madame Le Pen received 34 percent of the votes or the support of nearly 11 million people and everybody who supported her or did not, knew that her top agenda was to leave the European Union. "Cooperation in the European Union based on common values is irreplaceable for us, enabling us to overcome all challenges today and in the future".
President Kiska is looking forward to cooperating with Marcon and deepening what he described as "traditionally excellent and intense" relations between Slovakia and France.
"I will vote for Emmanuel Macron", Hollande said in a speech, broadcast by BFMTV television.
Unknown to voters before his turbulent 2014-16 tenure as France's pro-business economy minister, Macron took a giant gamble by quitting Socialist President Francois Hollande's government to run as an independent in his first campaign.
Russian President Vladimir Putin asked Macron to bridge deep rifts between Moscow and Paris and work together to fight the threat of terror.
