The Elysee Palace announced on Sunday the appointment of eleven Secretaries of State who complete the new government headed by Jean Castex. These appointments come three weeks after the government’s reshuffle operated by the French head of state.
Thus, the new government team now has 16 ministers, 14 deputy ministers and 12 state secretaries, for a total of 42 members, respecting parity.
