Education Minister Gabriel Attal has just been appointed prime minister of France, the first out gay man and LGBTQ+ person to be named to the position. At age 34, he will also be the country’s youngest prime minister in its Fifth Republic. “I know I can count on your energy and your commitment to get my plan for [civic and economic] rearmament and revitalization that I announced,” President Emmanuel Macron posted on X after appointing Attal to the position. The prime minister is the second-highest office in the country after the president. The prime minister is the head of government and can propose ministers as well as bills before the National Assembly.
