France's Macron appoints centre-right PM to widen appealNew French President Emmanuel Macron named centre-right lawmaker Edouard Philippe as prime minister on Monday in a further effort to splinter the country’s traditional parties and redraw the political map. Philippe, a little known 46-year-old MP and mayor of the northern port of Le Havre, comes from the moderate wing of the rightwing Republicans party and is seen as a pragmatist. France’s fervently pro-European new president — who travelled to Berlin later to meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel — has already won over dozens of moderate Socialist MPs.
