PARIS (Reuters) – France on Saturday announced a relatively minor cabinet reshuffle, with Jacqueline Gourault stepping down and Joel Giraud replacing her role as minister for “territorial cohesion and relations with local government”.
Nathalie Elimas, who was junior minister at the education ministry, will also leave the government, the French presidency added.
The government reshuffle comes just a month ahead of April’s presidential election, which polls say will see President Emmanuel Macron re-elected.
