Emmanuel Macron، 39، will officially assume power on Sunday in an inauguration ceremony at the Elysée Palace making him the youngest French president in history.

Outgoing Socialist president François Hollande will greet his successor at the steps of the Elysee at a red carpet ceremony before the handover of the presidency to Macron offically takes place.

Hundreds of extra police will be on patrol across the French capital while the ceremony is conducted at the Elysee Palace، the president's official residence.

France has been under a state of emergency since terror attacks in 2015 and a large section of the city centre will be closed to traffic all morning.

Following the handover of power، an inspection of troops will be followed by a 21-gun salute.
Mr Macron will then visit the Arc de Triomphe and lay flowers at the tomb of the unknown soldier.
