French prime minister Élisabeth Borne resigns ahead of cabinet reshuffle

# The resignation of France’s prime minister, Élisabeth Borne, is reportedly paving the way for president Emmanuel Macron to announce a cabinet reshuffle ahead of the upcoming European Parliament elections later this year. She was the second female prime minister in France’s history and served for less than two years. Despite Borne’s relatively short tenure, she holds the record for being the longest-serving female prime minister, outlasting Édith Cresson’s term from 1991 to ’92.
