German Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed her opinion, saying that Emmanuel Macron will be a strong president if he is elected. Her statement is provided by Associated Press.

"I do not have the slightest doubt that Emmanuel Macron, if he's elected, which I hope, will be a strong president," Merkel noted.

Answering journalists’ question whether Macron should prove he is not a "German poodle," Merkel answered that the term was "simply absurd".

German leader said she also can’t anticipate the discussion with next French president.

As it was reported earlier, centrist Emmanuel Macron and far-right leader Marine Le Pen led the first round of France's presidential election. Macron had 23.75% of votes and Le Pen 21.53%, followed by conservative Francois Fillon at 19.91% and far-leftist Jean-Luc Melenchon on 19.64%.
