The youngest prime minister of France, Gabriel Attal.

The 34-year-old education minister chosen by President Emmanuel Macron

In an attempt to launch a second term, French President Emmanuel Macron elevated his well-liked 34-year-old education minister Gabriel Attal, the youngest prime minister of France. In a statement released on Tuesday, the Élysée Palace acknowledged the decision and stated that Attal will now choose his cabinet.

History of Prime minister Gabriel Attal:

In 2017, Macron won the presidency on a centrist, pro-business ticket. Since then, he has steadily advanced through the ranks. In 2018, he was hired as a low-ranking official in the ministry of education under Macron. In 2020, he gained fame when he was appointed government spokesperson and regularly appeared at weekly press conferences. Following that, in July 2023, he was appointed minister of education and the budget in 2022.

With a decidedly more political bent than the technocratic Élisabeth Borne, who resigned on Monday and was only the second woman to hold the position, Attal will become the youngest prime minister of France in history. Attal vowed to advance Macron’s agenda at the appointment ceremony in the prime minister’s home, Matignon’s courtyard. Given that he was just appointed as minister of education and has less experience than other candidates who were rejected, Attal’s selection seems unexpected. In the run-up to the European elections, Attal will also be expected to assist Macron in reducing the 10-point polling difference with Marine Le Pen’s far-right party.

Chloé Morin on Gabriel Attal:

However the famous novelist and political commentator Chloé Morin highlighted that Macron’s primary issue that he lacks a parliamentary majority and must make agreements with opposition parties in order to carry out his reform agenda that would not be resolved by appointing prime minister of France, Gabriel Attal.

Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is cleared to run in elections as the Supreme Court ends his lifetime disqualification.

0

The Supreme Court of Pakistan has abolished the lifetime disqualification of legislators, as per Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution, with a resounding 6-1 majority judgment. This decision overturns the court’s earlier 2018 decision and specifies that disqualification under Article 62(1)(f) shall adhere to particular procedures rather than being permanent.

The Elections (Amendment) Act 2023, which establishes a 5-year disqualification period, is taken into account in the court’s decision. Notably, those who were disqualified under this provision such as leader Jahangir Tareen and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif are now permitted to run in elections.

The court’s ruling takes a more nuanced approach to political disqualifications in Pakistan and represents a fundamental shift in the interpretation of Article 62(1)(f) by highlighting the need for a statute establishing the disqualification procedure.
