French President Emmanuel Macron Begins Naming His Cabinet, Government

PARIS – France’s newly elected president began appointing his cabinet on Wednesday, one day later than expected.

The mayor of the city of Lyon, Gérard Collomb, who was among the first politicians to back Emmanuel Macron in his bid to become president, has been named Interior Minister.

Also, Socialist Jean-Yves Le Drian, until now Defense Minister, has been appointed as Foreign Minister, the President’s office said.

Conservative lawmaker Bruno Le Maire was named as the new Finance Minister, substituting the Socialist Michel Sapin, in a bid to boost the confidence of European Union member states.

Alongside Collomb, Nicolas Hulot will share a senior ministerial post in charge of Ecology, while Justice will be headed by François Bayrou.

Macron’s government contains 22 members, half of whom are women.

As he had announced during his presidential campaign, Macron appointed a cabinet with a large proportion of personalities from civil society, such as the heads of Health, Agnès Buzyn; Labor, Muriel Penicaud; Education, Jean-Michel Blanquer or Agriculture, Jacques Mézard.

Macron’s government contains diverse political sensitivities, from the centrist Bayrou, Finance Minister Gérard Darmanin who hails from a pro-Sarkozy conservative leaning or the Socialist Le Drian in charge of international diplomacy.
