Paris: French President Emmanuel Macron has inducted three new faces in his government — two of whom come from his inner circle — and will be replacing the three members who quit office to prepare their bids for the upcoming European and local elections, the French presidency said.
In a statement on Sunday, the Elysee announced that Sibeth Ndiaye, 39, previously Macron’s communications adviser, has been appointed the government spokeswoman and will replace Benjamin Griveaux who resigned last week to run for Paris Mayor next year.
A close ally to the 41-year-old head of state, Cedric O has joined the centrist executive staff to manage digital affairs, replacing Mounir Mahjoubi who is also aiming to compete for the Paris Mayor’s job, Xinhua news agency reported. (IANS)
