According to official statements, President Emmanuel Macron re-shuffled his cabinet due to a series of national crisis.

Official data shows that the nation has been rattled by unrest over a contested pension reform, followed by nationwide riots that were sparked by the shooting death of a 17-year-old by police.

According to the announcement, Aurelien Rousseau, who was Borne's chief of staff for one year, takes over Francois Braun as the health minister. Pap Ndiaye, a historian appointed as education minister last year, will leave the government, to be replaced by Gabriel Attal, who was named budget minister in 2022 and had served as government spokesperson for two years before that.

Philippe Vigier, a member of the Democratic Movement, will serve as the new minister delegate for overseas affairs. The mayor of Dunkirk, Patrice Vergriete, was brought in as the minister delegate for housing. Sabrina Agresti-Roubache was appointed the state secretary for cities, a position in which she will be responsible for urban policy.

Marlene Schiappa, the state secretary for the social and solidarity economy and associative Lifes, will leave the government as she has been under fire over the misuse of an anti-extremism fund.

French President Emmanuel Macron will chair the first cabinet meeting of the new government on Friday morning, according to the presidential office.
