The French government led by Prime Minister Edouard Philippe and his government have submitted their resignations, which President Emmanuel Macron has accepted, according to the Elysee Palace.No reason was given in the short statement issued on Friday, but a cabinet shuffle had been widely expected after Macron promised to chart a new course for the last two years of his term.The government will continue to handle "day-to-day matters" until a new government is formed, the presidency said. The Elysee Palace later said the new prime minister was expected to be named "within hours".
