The President of France, Emmanuel Macron has accepted the resignation of Prime Minister Edouard Philippe and the entire cabinet, thereby paving way for Macron to form a new cabinet.

The development was made public through a statement by the president’s office, adding however that the current cabinet would remain in charge of governmental affairs until a new team was put in place.

In France, the president — the main political figure — selects the prime minister, who then forms the government.

As such, the resignation paves the way for a cabinet reshuffle.
