French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe's government resigned on Friday. The background to his departure is the poor performance of the ruling party LREM in the second round of the municipal elections on June 28. In a surprise move President Macron appointed Jean Castex, the conservative mayor of the town of Prades and coordinator of the exit from the coronavirus lockdown, as the new prime minister. Europe's press is abuzz with the news.
