France announces minor cabinet reshuffle as minister Gourault steps down

France introduced on Saturday a comparatively minor cupboard reshuffle, with Jacqueline Gourault stepping down and being changed in her position as Minister for ‘Territorial Cohesion and Relations with Native Authorities’ by Joel Giraud.

Nathalie Elimas, who was a junior minister inside the Ministry for Schooling, may also depart the federal government, added the French presidency.

The federal government reshuffle comes only a month earlier than the presidential election in April, which opinion polls state as leading to a re-election for President Emmanuel Macron.
