Braun-Pivet elected as French National Assembly head

The French National Assembly voted on Tuesday to elect Yael Braun-Pivet (pictured) as its next president.

Braun-Pivet, who was first elected to the National Assembly in 2017, will become the first woman to hold the position of the body's president.

In April, she was named Overseas Territories minister, but stepped down from the role after winning re-election to the National Assembly.
