Macron Appoints New French Prime Minister

The new Prime Minister of France, instead of Eduard Philippe, who had resigned earlier that day, was appointed Jean Castex.





According to the press service of the Champs Elysees, President Emmanuel Macron has already signed a decree appointing the deputy head of his administration to the post of head of government.

“The President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron, has appointed Jean Castex Prime Minister and instructed him to form a government,” reads a laconic statement on the site of the Champs Elysees.

As expected, the new cabinet will be formed within a few days, and its composition will be presented to Myron at the next meeting of the Council of Ministers of France, which will be held on July 8.

Castex’s predecessor held the prime minister’s chair for three years, but won the mayoral election of Le Havre and decided to resign. He will begin his new duties on July 4. As we already wrote, Philip’s rating significantly exceeded the rating of the president himself.

55-year-old Jean Castex is known as the author of the state plan for France to exit the coronavirus quarantine. Philip praised his work and his team, calling it “incredibly effective.”





Since 2008, he has also been the head of the Prad commune in southern France, and last year Macron appointed him president of the National Sports Agency. In this position, Castex was responsible for the preparation for the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.

Previously, in 2005-2007, he headed the department of the hospitalization department of the Ministry of Health and the secretariat of the Minister of Health.

An integral advantage of the new prime minister is his good relationship with representatives of the largest union of the General Confederation of Labor — Force Uvrier, which should help Macron implement his unpopular pension and labor reform, which marked the beginning of the yellow vest movement in the country.
