Gabriel Attal

Gabriel Nissim Attal de Couriss  born 16 March 1989 is a French politician serving as the Prime Minister of France since January 2024. Attal has become one of the most popular politicians in France and the French media have speculated that he is a potential contender in 2027 French presidential election as a successor to Macron.

A member of the Renaissance party, Attal rapidly rose up the political ranks following his election to the National Assembly in June 2017; he became the Junior Minister to the Minister of National Education and Youth in 2018, which made him the youngest person to serve in the Government of France, the Spokesperson of the Government in 2020, the Minister of Public Action and Accounts in 2022, and the Minister of National Education and Youth in 2023.

On 9 January 2024, amid a major government crisis, Attal was appointed by the French President, Emmanuel Macron, to replace Élisabeth Borne as Prime Minister of France. At the age of 34, he became the youngest person and the first openly gay person to serve as a G7 head of government as well as the ninth openly LGBT person and the youngest person currently serving as a head of state or government in the world.

Prime Minister of France

The current Prime Minister is Gabriel Attal, who was appointed on 9 January 2024. The prime minister of France (French: Premier ministre français), officially the prime minister of the French Republic, is the head of government of the French Republic and the leader of the Council of Ministers.

The prime minister is the holder of the second-highest office in France, after the president of France. The president, who appoints but cannot dismiss the prime minister, can request resignation. The Government of France, including the prime minister, can be dismissed by the National Assembly. Upon appointment, the prime minister proposes a list of ministers to the president.

Decrees and decisions signed by the prime minister, like almost all executive decisions, are subject to the oversight of the administrative court system. Some decrees are taken after advice from the Council of State (French: Conseil d’État), over which the prime minister is entitled to preside. Ministers defend the programmes of their ministries to the prime minister, who makes budgetary choices. The extent to which those decisions lie with the prime minister or president often depends upon whether they are of the same political party. If so, the president may serve as both the head of state and de facto head of government, while the prime minister serves as his deputy.
