French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday named Gabriel Attal as the country’s new prime minister, as he seeks to set a fresh course ahead of the summer’s European Union elections.

Attal, the current education minister, will become the youngest person to occupy France’s second-highest office at 34 years old. The news was reported by broadcaster BFM and later posted on social media by Macron’s political party.
