34-year-old Education Minister Gabriel Attal will be France’s new prime minister on Tuesday.

ANNOUNCEMENT

French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday named 34-year-old Gabriel Attal as France’s new prime minister.

Attal becomes France’s openly gay and youngest prime minister.

The move comes as Macron seeks a fresh start for the remainder of his term amid growing political pressure from the far right.

Attal rose to prominence as a government spokesperson and education minister.

His predecessor Elisabeth Borne resigned on Monday following recent political turmoil over a controversial new immigration law, which some said showed Macron was caving in to the far right.

Macron, a 46-year-old centrist whose term expires in 2027, will name a government in the coming days.
