France’s youngest ever Prime Minister, Gabriel Attal, has appointed his ex-partner, Stéphane Séjourné, 38, as the minister of foreign affairs.

34-year-old Attal emerged the country’s PM on Thursday, January 11, 2024. Sejourne is the head of Macron’s Renaissance party and the leader of the Renew Europe group of liberal, pro-European lawmakers at the European Parliament.

Attal, France’s first openly gay prime minister, made their relationship public when he first joined Macron’s government in 2018.

The two men never publicly confirmed their breakup, but in his October declaration to the High Authority for Transparency in Public Life, which compiles declarations by high-ranking officials to record potential conflicts of interest, Attal declared having no partner.
