French PM resigns after punitive local votes: media

法国总理府31日发布公报说,总理艾罗当天下午已经向总统奥朗德递交辞呈。

法国市镇选举第二轮投票30日结束。选举初步结果显示,执政近两年的社会党在众多市镇选举遭遇失败,而在野党人民运动联盟获得显著胜利。当地媒体普遍认为,鉴于不利的选举结果,奥朗德可能会改组政府,甚至更换总理。

2012年5月15日,法国新任总统奥朗德任命让-马克·艾罗为政府总理并负责组阁。

French Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault has resigned on Monday after the Socialists' poor score in local election, paving the way for a new team expected to bring a fresh breath to the struggling cabinet, local media reported.

Citing the Premier's office, the news channel BFMTV said Ayrault presented his resignation to French President Francois Hollande under pressure of rising calls for a new head of Matignon able to lead a fighting government against unemployment and unhealthy finances.

The report added that the Interior Minister Manuel Valls will replace the veteran Socialist.

Socialists' losses in two-round municipal elections triggered calls for a shake-up and to inject new blood in a government weakened by series of policy mishaps of his members.

More than 70 percent of French people asked for new prime minister, a BVA poll showed.

In a brief statement posted on the Elysee website, beleaguered Hollande will give a televised address at 8 pm (1800 GMT) in a fresh attempt to defend policy and regain voters' confidence by unveiling the list of his new cabinet.

The latest reshuffle in the French cabinet was on June 21, 2012, when the Socialists won an absolute majority in the lower house of parliament in the last legislative elections.
