French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe Resigns

French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe announced on Friday that he would resign from his office, several days after he emerged victorious in the city of Le Havre during the second round of the country’s municipal elections, winning with 58.8 percent of the vote.

“Today, Edouard Philippe submitted a notice of resignation from the post of the head of government, and the president accepted it,” the Elysee Palace said in a communique.

Philippe and cabinet members will continue managing pending matters until a new government is appointed.
