Gabriel Attal has just made history as France’s youngest and first openly gay prime minister,
According to reports from local media outlets, the moment is described as a historic ordeal for the nation as critics have their say on the controversial matter.
The news was considered shocking to many conservatives in the nation while others called out French President Macron for the decision that not a lot of people saw coming.
The President rolled out a post on the X app, adding how the news brought him joy while adding how it was going to be promising for the entire nation as he put great hope in the recently elected prime minister.
Gabriel Attal has been making headlines for not only being so young and inexperienced in the world of politics but also his status where he identified as ‘LGBTQ’ in a nation like France where no other politician of the sort has been confirmed where people were wondering what was next for the country.
For a man his age, he’s doing great and will surely shine in all ways, the President added, showing how much trust and belief he has in the youngster’s skills.
For those who might not be aware, Gabriel has also served as the nation’s education minister in the past and was a part of those who vowed to ban the Muslim Abaya dress.
Hence, he has already been dubbed a powerful LGBTQ politician and this new status as the country’s prime minister is said to add a new boost of confidence to his aura.
But the opposition is not loving the news. They called the matter like one that was so childish and the antics involved in reshuffling the cabinet at this point were not taken on well.
“We expect nothing from the new government, they are making a mockery of the country”- the statements by the opposition continued.
