The former economy minister who quit President Francois Hollande's government this summer slammed the whole political class for failing to reform a country struggling with endemic unemployment and shaken by deadly attacks. "When politics is no longer a mission but a profession, politicians become more self-serving than public servants," Macron told a rally of more than a 1,000 people in the eastern city of Strasbourg.

Hollande entrusts French economy to ex-banker Macron

August 26, 2014 |

By Ingrid Melander and Jean-Baptiste Vey PARIS (Reuters) – By making ex-banker Emmanuel Macron his new Economy Minister, French President Francois Hollande will be hoping to boost his pro-reform agenda and end two years of infighting on his economics team. Macron, 36, Hollande’s top economic adviser until a few weeks ago, has the business community’s ear, although his appointment will not ease the cabinet’s relations with rebel lawmakers who want an economic policy U-turn. The contrast could not be starker between Macron, who helped draw up Hollande’s pro-business agenda, and the man he will replace, firebrand, anti-austerity advocate Arnaud Montebourg, who was ousted on Monday for slamming the government’s economic policy.
