Paris — The expected restructuring of the French government after President Emmanuel Macron lost an absolute majority in parliament could take place next Monday or Tuesday, government spokesmen said on Friday. Stated.

When asked on LCI television if this was planned at the time, Olivia Gregoire said, "We can imagine it."

Two government sources told Reuters that key duties such as the Treasury haven't changed and are hoping for a remodeling on Monday.

Macron, who was re-elected president in April, lost control of Congress in the legislative elections last month. This means that it is no longer a rubber stamp of government plans.

In addition, the three ministers lost their bid to win a parliamentary seat during the vote. That is, according to a non-written but established treaty, they must resign from the government.

According to RTL Radio, at least four new cabinet ministers will be appointed in the next remodeling.

Prime Minister Elizabeth Borne, who has been in charge of the government since Macron's reelection, will submit her general policy statement to Congress next Wednesday – 1300 GMT in the House of Representatives and 1900 GMT in the Senate.

"A cabinet meeting will be held next week," Gregoire added, attending the cabinet a few weeks later and adding that a bill will be submitted to parliament this month focusing on boosting citizens' purchasing power.
