Elisabeth Borne appointed new PM of France

Elisabeth Borne, who formerly chaired the Ministry of Labor, Employment, and Integration, will become the new Prime Minister of France, the Elysee said in a statement on Monday.

Borne will replace Jean Castex, who led the Cabinet since July 2020 and resigned earlier on Monday during a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron.

Borne will be the second woman in French history to be appointed prime minister. Before joining the Macron government, she served numerous Socialist Party ministers.
