Breaking: France Appoints Young and Openly Gay Gabriel Attal as Prime Minister

France’s president, Emmanuel Macron, appointed Gabriel Attal as the country’s new prime minister, making the 34-year-old the youngest and first openly gay head of government in France, according to AFP. This decision followed the resignation of Elisabeth Borne, who served less than two years in the position, leading to an anticipated cabinet reshuffle.

In a statement, the presidential office announced, “The president of the republic appointed Mr. Gabriel Attal prime minister and tasked him with forming a government.”

Who is France’s new PM Gabriel Attal?

Gabriel Attal, a close ally of Macron, previously served as the government spokesman during the Covid pandemic. Congratulatory messages poured in, with Sylvain Maillard, leader of Macron’s Renaissance party, expressing confidence in Attal’s ability to carry out their shared project and embody their values.

Attal is recognized as one of the country’s most popular politicians in recent opinion polls. Known for his effectiveness in various roles, including radio shows and parliamentary sessions, Attal’s appointment marks a historic moment as he becomes France’s youngest prime minister and the first openly gay individual to hold the position.

France MP Patrick Vignal remarked, “Gabriel Attal is a bit like the Macron of 2017,” drawing parallels to Macron’s ascent as the youngest leader in modern French history. Described as clear and authoritative, Attal is expected to bring a fresh perspective to the government.

Why Emmanuel Macron has chosen Gabriel Attal for the post?

Emmanuel Macron’s choice of Attal comes at a time when the president faces challenges in navigating a more turbulent parliament after losing his absolute majority in 2022. While Macron and Attal may inject new energy into the government, opposition leader Olivier Faure remains skeptical, stating that regardless of the personnel changes, the policies are unlikely to shift significantly.
