Emmanuel Macron has been officially sworn in as the president of France. Macron's inauguration at the Elysee Palace Sunday morning was organised in typical French ritual and tradition.

CNN reports that upon his arrival at the Elysee Palace, he walked down a long red carpet, where he was greeted by outgoing President Francois Hollande.
The two men shook hands between the French and European Union (EU) flags, a reminder of France's prominent role in the 28-member bloc and Macron's commitment to the EU.

At 39, he becomes the youngest president in France's history, and the youngest leader since Napoleon.

In his inaugural speech, the new President vowed to bring confidence back to a nation that has been "broken" by a spate of terror attacks and a sluggish economy.

He also said he hoped to restore French values and applauded voters for resisting the wave of populism in choosing him over his rival, far-right candidate Marine Le Pen.

Macron has shaken up French politics with his meteoric rise to the presidency, winning his campaign as an independent, with the backing of a fledgling political party he founded less than a year ago.

The young French president has promised to breathe new life into French politics, and has laid out a vision of a vibrant economy boosted by innovation and technology, and openness to the world.

He is expected to name his prime minister on Monday and a full Cabinet by Wednesday.
