A new government will be named in the next few days, government spokesman Christophe Castaner said yesterday.
Since Mr Macron’s new party, Republic on the Move!, won an absolute majority in the 577-seat National Assembly, Mr Castaner said the government reshuffling would be “technical and not farreaching.”
He refused to say whether ministers who have come under corruption suspicions would keep their jobs. Many new parliament members have not held office before.
