France first meeting of new cabinet
France’s new government met for the very first time on Friday.
Former Interior Minister Manuel Valls is prime minister following a re-mix.
Valls heads a new group following bad local election results for that ruling Socialists which saw huge increases for conservatives and that far-right.
French President Francois Hollande’s ex-spouse and former presidential candidate Segolene Royal could be the new minister of environment and ecology.
Hollande hopes the changes can breathe new life into his unpopular presidency.
Studies show he’s minimal well-known leader in France’s 56-year-old Fifth Republic.
The brand new 16-minister group has the same quantity of women and men.
It’s been billed as the leanest case in contemporary French history.
