Bernard Cazeneuve has been appointed the new French Prime Minister.
The Interior Minister succeeded Manual Valls on Tuesday, who resigned to submit his Presidential candidacy.
That is the second time Cazeneuve replaces Valls. In 2014, when Valls was appointed Prime Minister, Cazeneuve replaced him as Minister of Interior. He gained eminence and some degree of popularity, holding the antiterrorism portfolio amidst the worst security crisis in Europe.
Cazeneuve will lead the Socialist administration until the Presidential elections of May 2017.
Meanwhile, the Socialist Party braces for a two-round primary with no less than seven candidates that will take place between January 22 and 29.
