French PM Edouard Philippe to leave his post:

ISLAMABAD-Paris,French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe will quit his post after three years in the job, a government source told AFP Friday ahead of a long-expected cabinet reshuffle by President Emmanuel Macron.

Philippe's government on Friday offered its resignation, which Macron accepted, days after a second round of municipal elections in which the president's ruling party made a poor showing.

 Preparations were already underway at the French premier's residence in Paris for the handover to a successor, whose name has yet to be revealed, an AFP correspondent said.(AFP/APP)
