Annick Girardin appointed Minister of Overseas


Yesterday, the secretary general of the Elysée, Alexis Kohler, announced the composition of the government of Edouard Philippe. And it is Annick Girardin, aged 52, born in Saint-Malo, who inherited the Ministry of Overseas, succeeding Minister Ericka Bareigts. This former member of the Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, member of the Left Radical Party, already has a busy political career. Minister of the Public Service under François Hollande, Ms. Girardin was also Secretary of State for Development and Francophonie. Two ministers from Holland therefore remained in government since Jean-Yves Le Drian moved from the Ministry of Defense to the Quai d'Orsay. During the primary of the left, Annick Girardin had supported Sylvia Pinel. _EH
