Jean Castex made French PM

French President Emmanuel Macron has named Jean Castex as the country's new prime minister. He made the announcement on Friday (July 3).

After losing local elections, Emmanuel Macron came up with the new declaration. Though, Jean Castex is not member of Macron’s party but he is member of right-wing opposition party.

Jean Castex, 55, is little known in France, but he is a senior civil servant and has played a key role in the government's response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Élysée Palace said formation of new government will be started on Saturday.
