Castex in office until Monday, making way for Macron’s second five-year term… at least
The start of Macron’s second five-year term begins at midnight on Saturday. However, the expectation of appointing a new Prime Minister to succeed Jean Castex, who will remain in office at least until Monday, continues.
When will Jean Castex present the President with his letter of resignation? If the Élysée hasn’t said so, one thing is certain: the president is packing his belongings, which he calls a “political necessity,” as he prepares for the June legislative elections.
However, the change will not occur this weekend. Jean Castex has one final trip planned for Sunday: leading the French delegation to the Vatican for the canonization of explorer and hermit Charles de Foucauld. Since then, the scenario of leaving at the start of next week has taken shape. A majority official believes the resignation will take place on Monday.
