FRANCE: Macron Appoints Another Female Prime Minister

French President Emmanuel Macron appointed Elisabeth Borne as France’s new prime minister, Borne is the second woman to hold the position, and the first to head the French government since 1992.

She succeeds Jean Castex, whose resignation paved the way for a cabinet overhaul after President Macron’s re-election last month.

Macron may have chosen Borne to help appeal to radical-left voters who backed Jean-Luc Melenchon in the first round of the presidential election in April, while avoiding alienating supporters right-wing supporters of Marine Le Pen.

Borne’s first task would be to steer Macron’s centrist grouping in the upcoming parliamentary election.

Despite being historically close to the Socialist Party, Borne proved her loyalty to the president during his first term when she served as transport, environment and finally, labour minister from 2020.

On her watch, unemployment fell to its lowest level in 15 years and youth unemployment to its lowest level in 40 years.

Macron has put the new prime minister directly in charge of “green planning,” seeking to accelerate France’s implementation of climate-related policies.

the French football federation has demanded Gueye answer allegations that he missed the PSG match against Montpellier in protest of the division’s support of LGBTQ+ rights.

The footballer has received a lot of support online including Senegalese President Macky Sall.
