French Government resigns ahead of new Prime Minister appointment

French President Emmanuel Macron appoints new prime minister after government resigns. Macron said the government's resignation was necessary to create a "new path" forward for his presidency. Top civil servant Jean Castex is France's new prime minister. Castex is a senior civil servant who has held several posts in local, regional and national governments.

In April, Castex was charged with managing the easing of France's lockdown during the novel Coronavirus Covid-19 Pandemic. Earlier, Eduoard Philippe resigned along with the rest of the French government.

The move creates a new direction for a government reshuffle. This type of move was widely expected as French President Emmanuel Macron seeks to boost his credentials with certain voters.

In June, France's Macron did declare a "first victory" over the Coronavirus Covid-19 Pandemic. However, the global Coronavirus Covid-19 Pandemic is still continuing around the globe.

It's important to stay 6 feet apart and wear a mask (as much as you can) everywhere you go. It's certainly a good idea to stay home as much as you can.
