Appointments to the French cabinet

Standard

It would be pleasing to see Emmanuel Macron appoint more ethnic minority people to the cabinet. He could have chosen Rachida Datti as Prime Minister. Instead he picked a white = an indigenous Frenchman. The new PM is also from northern France.

Rama Yade should also be in the cabinet. Macron wants a Ministry of all the talents. Therefore he will select people from the Socialist Party; the Republicans and minor parties. His own En March (On the Move) will probably have very few deputies elected to the National Assembly.

Having women appointed to public office does not bother me. We are all related to male and female. It is getting more black and Arab French people into top jobs that I am anxious to see.
