BRUSSELS (Reuters) - BRUSSELS, May 7 (Reuters) - Emmanuel Macron will be president of France after beating Marine Le Pen of the far-right National Front by 65 percent to 35 percent in Sunday's runoff, Belgian newspaper La Libre Belgique said, citing a projection based on early results by pollster Ipsos.

An independent centrist and former economy minister, Macron would become France's youngest head of state, aged just 39.
