France announces minor cabinet reshuffle as minister Gourault steps down


PARIS (Reuters) – France introduced on Saturday a comparatively minor cabinet reshuffle, with Jacqueline Gourault stepping down and being changed in her function as Minister for ‘Territorial Cohesion and Relations with Local Government’ by Joel Giraud.

Nathalie Elimas, who was a junior minister inside the Ministry for Education, can even go away the federal government, added the French presidency.

The authorities reshuffle comes only a month earlier than the presidential election in April, which opinion polls state as leading to a re-election for President Emmanuel Macron.
