Jean Castex: WHAT A BLUR! The resignation of the Prime Minister announced by the official website of the government…

This Saturday, May 14, the Matignon site displayed for several minutes a page announcing the “resignation of the government”. “Prime Minister Jean Castex presented the resignation of the government to the President of the Republic Emmanuel Macron”, the page said. Then several minutes later, this same message had disappeared from the site. A “small technical bug“was put forward by Matignon, contacted by our colleagues from France Info.The Prime Minister has not resigned“. The government site includes a “reshuffle mode, which can be activated at any time“.”This is purely a technical bug, the page has disappeared“, added for his part the entourage of Jean Castex.

Trip canceled

Pending the announcement of the new government, Jean Castex has canceled his last official trip, scheduled for the Vatican, Sunday May 15, on the occasion of the canonization ceremony of the French explorer Charles de Foucauld. Why ? The two chief executives cannot be outside the territory at the same time. Emmanuel Macron traveled to Abu Dhabi to pay tribute to the President of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan, who died on Friday May 13 at the age of 73.

What about his government?

While his second five-year term has officially begun, President Macron is waiting for his new Prime Minister. Same thing for the ministers who will make up the new government. The Head of State is in the reflection. Our colleagues from South West have indicated that according to an adviser to the executive, a dozen files have already gone to the High Authority for the transparency of public life (HATVP) for verification. The objective being to avoid taking a man or a woman politician who could cause a scandal like that caused by Jérôme Cahuzac for example.
