French president Emmanuel Macron has appointed Stéphane Séjourné, the ex-partner of new prime minister Gabriel Attal, to the role of foreign minister. On Tuesday (9 January) Macron named 34-year-old education minister Gabriel Attal as France’s youngest – and first gay – prime minister. The appointment also makes him the youngest head of government in the world at present. Following this, the French president has now appointed Stéphane Séjourné, 38, to the post of foreign minister, replacing 67-year-old Catherine Colonna. “I appreciate the honor done to me today,” Séjourné wrote on X/Twitter, sharing a video of the handover ceremony at the Quai d’Orsay between Colonna and himself.
