PARIS: President Emmanuel Macron of France convened a new, smaller cabinet for the first time on Friday, a day after a government reshuffle that brought in a handful of new ministers but that left most key positions untouched.
“A united government,” Macron said before camera crews were ushered out before the cabinet meeting. “Let’s get to work.”
Many of the 14 ministers around the table were longtime pillars of Macron’s government, including interior minister Gerald Darmanin, economy minister Bruno Le Maire, defence minister Sebastien Lecornu and.justice minister Eric Dupond-Moretti.
Macron signalled a focus on Europe by appointing Stephane Sejourne, a top ally of the French leader in the European Parliament, as foreign minister. The most unexpected announcement was new culture minister Rachida Dati, a high-profile, outspoken conservative with little prior cultural expertise.
Catherine Vautrin, a right-wing politician who became the new labour minister, will also be in charge of health. Amelie Oudea-Castera, who was formerly in charge of sports, is now also leading the education ministry. nyt
