Oman Daily Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

BER­LIN: Ger­man Chan­cel­lor An­gela Merkel backed the French govern­ment in its plans to re­form the labour mar­ket, the me­dia re­ported.

Speak­ing at a joint press con­fer­ence in Ber­lin along with France’s Prime Min­is­ter on Friday, Merkel said that Pres­i­dent Em­manuel Macron had vowed to carry out the re­form dur­ing his elec­tion cam­paign, and he was now putting his plans into ac­tion, Efe news re­ported.

The head of the Ger­man govern­ment con­sid­ered that Macron had grounds to im­ple­ment the re­forms as he had out­lined them dur­ing his cam­paign, and re­ceived pop­u­lar sup­port in the pres­i­den­tial and par­lia­men­tary elec­tions.

Sub­se­quent wins in the elec­tions gave Macron’s govern­ment a “strong le­git­i­macy” to move ahead with the changes he had pre­sented dur­ing the cam­paign, Merkel said. — IANS
