The Prime Minister of France Jean Castex is leaving after a speech in the media on October 3, 2020 after heavy rains and severe floods.

French Prime Minister Jean Castex on Monday resigned from President Emanuel Macron, paving the way for a long-awaited cabinet reshuffle and the likely appointment of a second woman in 30 years.

Macron – who was re-elected in April and must demonstrate that he heard the frustration of voters expressed by low turnout and strong support for far-right and far-left radicals – said he was looking for a prime minister with green and social political powers.

His associates said he was likely to appoint a woman to be the first after Edith Cresson briefly took office during the presidency of Socialist leader Francois Mitterrand in the early 1990s.

It is expected that the current Minister of Labor Elizabeth Bourne, 61, will receive this job. Bourne, a soft-working bureaucrat who served as a member of many Socialist ministers before joining Macron’s government, briefly served as environment minister in 2019 – when she pursued a bicycle-friendly policy.

She then took over the leadership of the Ministry of Labor and oversaw negotiations with the unions, which led to a reduction in unemployment benefits for some jobseekers.

Such a profile could help meet the challenge posed by hard-line veteran Jean-Luc Melanchon, who took a strong third place in the presidential election, which allowed him to assemble a broad coalition of France’s left-wing parties in the June 12-19 parliamentary elections. .
