Macron was re-elected for another 5 years on April 24 in a run-off in which he defeated Marine Le Pen.

“The time ahead will be that of resolute action for France and for Europe,” Mr Macron said. He promised to “first take action to avoid any escalation following Russia’s aggression in Ukraine.”

Mr Macron vowed to act “relentlessly with a goal, which is to be a more independent nation, to live better and to build our own French and European responses to the century’s challenges.”

He also promised to find a “fair method” to govern the country and ease social tensions by making the government and parliament work together with unions, associations and other people from the political, economic, social and cultural spheres.

About 500 guests were invited to the ceremony. They came primarily from the world of politics, although there were some actors, health care workers and military officers. Former presidents Francois Hollande and Nicolas Sarkozy were also in attendance.
