2 French ministers quit
PARIS: French armed forces minister Sylvie Goulard unexpectedly quit her job yesterday, saying she did not want to stay on because of an investigation overshadowing her Modem party’s affairs in the European parliament.
That followed an announcement late on Monday that Richard Ferrand, an aide to President Emmanuel Macron and minister for territorial planning, facing a separate judicial investigation, would move out of government to a job as leader of his party in parliament. After his win on Sunday, Macron is preparing a government reshuffle before effecting major reforms. Reuters
