Gabriel Attal becomes France’s youngest prime minister in modern history

French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday named Gabriel Attal as the country’s new prime minister, as he seeks to set a fresh course ahead of the summer’s European Union elections. Attal, the current education minister, will become the youngest person to occupy France’s second-highest office at 34 years old. The news was reported by broadcaster BFM and later posted on social media by Macron’s political party. It follows the apparently reluctant resignation of Elisabeth Borne on Monday afternoon, who said in a letter that she had been informed it was Macron’s wish. Borne said it was “more necessary than ever to continue the reforms” being carried out by the government.
