The Élysée office announced on Friday PM Edouard Philippe quits.
France’s Prime Minister Edouard Philippe and his ministers submit their resignations.
President Macron gears up for reshuffle.
French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe quit his office on Friday signalling a government reshuffle by President Emmanuel Macron in a bid to increase his green credentials and win back disillusioned voters ahead of a possible re-election bid.
The Elysee Palace said in a statement that Philippe would handle government affairs until a new cabinet was named.
Questions over Philippe’s job had swirled since mid-June when Macron declared he wanted to “reivent” his presidency. In French government reshuffles, the prime minister tenders his or her resignation ahead of cabinet appointments but can still be re-named to the position.
