France has a woman prime minister for the second time in its history. President Emmanuel Macron has nominated the previous Labor Minister Élisabeth Borne (61) to succeed Prime Minister Jean Castex (56), the Elysée Palace announced on Monday. Edith Cresson (88) was France’s first and only female prime minister to date. She held the post from May 1991 to April 1992.

The 61-year-old left-wing politician of President Emmanuel Macron’s ruling party (44) is one of the few who were in his government team from the start. It is expected that Castex will hand over official business to Borne in the evening. In the coming days, the new government team will be presented. The first cabinet meeting is scheduled to take place towards the end of the week.
