The Macron government in France has undergone some changes, but there is also continuity. Agriculture Minister Marc Fesneau has kept his position, despite concerns after his party leader criticized Macron. Agnès Pannier-Runacher, who was the Energy Minister, has been moved under Fesneau, and Roland Lescure takes over her former role. Frédéric Valletoux joins the cabinet as a junior health minister and Patrice Vergriete takes over as the transport minister from Clément Beaune, who was ousted after criticizing the government’s immigration bill.
Amélie Oudéa-Castéra has been demoted after a controversy about her children attending private schools, and she will now be sports minister instead of in charge of education. Nicole Belloubet, a former justice minister, takes her place. Macron has previously said that education is extremely important, and that he will be implementing changes to make schools more strict. It will now fall to Bellout to navigate these controversial policies.
