FRANCE : PHILIPPE NEW PRIME MINISTER


President Macron has chosen Edouard Philippe as his Prime Minister : he is from the right-wing "Republican Party" (LR) and Alain Juppé  was his mentor.

The new Prime Minister will now form a Government, which could be reshuffled after the Election on June 11 and 18. 

At least 20 LR have favourably reacted to this nomination.  This balances the numerous Socialists who recently joined the "Republic en Marche", the Party Macron recently formed.  Their defections have split the Socialist Party !

Will the appointment of Edouard Philippe  destabilise the  LR party as well, which was  Macron's aim ?
