France's Macron to name PM on first full day in office

16 May 2017, 09:42 | Candice Butler

He said he will implement a reform agenda at home "not because Europe requests it, but because France needs it".

The new prime minister is also a keen amateur boxer, has written two crime thrillers, and has a strong interest in war-time British prime minister Winston Churchill. Conservative former president Nicolas Sarkozy, who led France from 2007 to 2012, was nicknamed "President Bling-Bling" for his flashy lifestyle.

Unlike other European countries, the French prime minister is not seen as a superior to other ministers.

The EU's precursor was created to bolster trade among European countries and help ensure they never go to war with each other again. "We're convinced we'll find a way to make progress with Germany".

Ms. Merkel said she and Mr. Macron had agreed to "develop anew" their bilateral relationship and that their cabinet ministers would meet shortly after the French parliamentary election in June.

Merkel's government has been grateful for Macron's support for her open-armed approach to refugees, which Macron said "rescued Europe's honor" - rare clear backing on that front from a senior European official.

His visit to Merkel is in keeping with France s presidential tradition of making Berlin the first foreign port of call.

Macron is the conservative Merkel's fourth French president in almost 12 years as chancellor.

North Korea's Latest Missile Launch Suggest Progress Towards ICBM
The missile firing took place Sunday, North Korea time, with the projectile landing in the sea between North Korea and Japan. More missile tests were forewarned "until the USA and its vassal forces make a proper choice with reason".

A large group of onlookers, some carrying European flags, stood outside the chancellery as Macron arrived.

Macron previously met Merkel when he visited Berlin in March as a candidate.

Fabienne Keller is a French Senator with the Republicans who, like Prime Minister Philippe, supported Alain Juppé in his unsuccessful bid for the presidency.

Despite her crushing defeat to Macron, Le Pen is counting on her record high voter count — more than 10.6 million — to propel her party into parliament, as well as bidding to take in "electoral orphans" unsatisfied by Macron and feeling betrayed by the mainstream right, Bay said.

As well as deciding on the crucial figure of his first prime minister - which will send a powerful signal about his intentions - Macron has also had to grapple this week with the case of a problematic former colleague.

First Secretary of the Socialist Party Jean-Christophe Cambadelis took issue not with Philippe personally, but rather with the general direction in which the nominations were going.

Last week, Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert had said on the subject of euro bonds: "I can tell you that the federal government's dismissive attitude toward euro bonds remains valid", when asked if Germany would back Macron should he push for the creation of such financial instruments.
