Spanish leader sees victory for Europe

AP , Monday 25 Apr 2022

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez says that with the victory of Emmanuel Macron as projected by polling agencies, ``Democracy wins, Europe wins.''



``Citizens have chosen a France committed to a free, strong and fair EU,'' Sanchez, who is also leader of Spain's Socialist Party, wrote, referring to the 27-nation European Union.

Sanchez, Portugal's Antonio Costa and Germany's Olaf Scholz had published a joint open letter ahead of Sunday's election presenting the vote as a choice between Macron, a defender of democracy in a strong European Union, and Marine Le Pen, ``an extreme-right candidate who openly sides with those who attack our freedom and democracy, values based on the French ideas of Enlightenment.''
