Remaniement

Summary:
Macron has completed his first remaniement. It turned out to be a small affair. No one was sacked. Even Christophe Castaner, who many thought would have to go because he could not both become head of LRM and remain in charge of relations with parliament, stayed in the end, perhaps as yet another demonstration that Macron can and will do as he pleases, critics notwithstanding. The few ministers and sub-ministers rumored to have their heads on the chopping block kept them in the end.As a gesture, perhaps, to the left, Olivier Dussopt, once close to Martine Aubry and then to Manuel Valls, became a Socialist Trojan horse in the otherwise solidly right-wing Bercy. He will be in charge of the civil service, which is perhaps the only remaining PS foyer.
