Macron cabinet: women are half of France’s new minsters

Written by  May 18, 2017

French President Emmanuel Macron has unveiled a gender-balanced cabinet in accordance with an earlier pledge, with women taking up 11 of 22 posts.

Sylvie Goulard is defense minister while Olympic fencing champion Laura Flessel is sports minister. Bruno Le Maire is economy minister, Gerard Collomb is interior minister and François Bayrou is justice minister.

Macron's decision to pluck figures from across conservatives, socialists and centrists spectrum has sent the French right into disarray.

France's new president will hope his team delivers a majority in parliamentary elections next month and further his aim of political renewal.
