The French Prime Minister (PM) Manuel Valls, Monday morning resigned his appointment, following torrent criticism of poor economy.
Consequently, Valls has been directed by President Francois Hollande to constitute a new cabinet that would suit the economic direction of the country and present administration.
Former PM has earlier been criticized by the economy Minister, Arnaud Montebourg, regarding the state of the country’s economy.
He had equally accused the Minister of crossing a yellow line, having hinged his (Montebourg ) attack on severe austerity measures which has allegedly taken its toll on the country’s economy.
Montebourg once declared at a meeting of Socialists in eastern France, that it was time country resisted excesses of the German conservatives’ tendencies in French government.
