France's centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron won the second round of the presidential election with 66.06 percent of the votes, compared to 33.94 percent for his far-right rival Marine Le Pen, after all ballots were counted early Monday.

The Ministry of Interior said on its website that the former Minister of Economy received the support of 20.7 million voters, while the leader of the National Front (FN) was backed by 10.6 million.

Macron achieved its best results in Paris, with close to 90 percent, and in the surrounding departments of Hauts-de-Seine and Val-de-Marne, where he exceeded 80 percent.

The most supporters for Le Pen were in Aisne and Pas-de-Calais, both in the north of France with percentages above 52 percent.
