In a historic move, French President Emmanuel Macron has appointed Gabriel Attal as the new Prime Minister of France, making him the youngest to ever hold the position in the country’s history.

At 34, Attal surpasses even the socialist Laurent Fabius, who was 37 when appointed by François Mitterrand in 1984. Attal replaces Élisabeth Borne, who resigned after serving 20 months in office.

Attal’s political ascent has been remarkably swift. Just a decade ago, he was an advisor in the Ministry of Health as a member of the Socialist Party. His career trajectory took a significant turn following Macron’s election in 2017, leading to his appointment as a Member of Parliament where he distinguished himself as a speaker and gained public attention.

By the age of 29, Attal had become one of the youngest ministers in the history of parliamentary democracy. He served as the government spokesperson from 2020 and briefly held the position of Budget Minister following Macron’s re-election. Most recently, he was appointed Minister of Education in July of the previous year.

Polls indicate that Attal is the most highly regarded member of Macron’s cabinet. His appointment is seen as a strategic move to strengthen the centrist forces against right-wing opponents, notably led by Marine Le Pen. As the youngest Prime Minister in French history, Attal represents a new generation of leadership, bringing a fresh perspective to the French political landscape.
