France appoints first female prime minister in 30 years Updated: 2022-05-17 06:16:29 KST

French President, Emmanuel Macron, on Monday picked Labor Minister Elisabeth Borne as his new prime minister, marking the second time in 30 years that a woman has got the job.
Notably a faithful Macron supporter, the 61-year old has held three ministerial jobs during her first term: transport, environment and labour.
The move comes as re-elected Macron prepares for the two-round mid-June legislative elections.
Speaking in a brief inaugural address, Borne said that France needs to act (quote) "faster and stronger" in fighting climate change.
She also pledged to protect the French's purchasing power, a main concern amongst voters.
