France's new president in Berlin after naming prime minister

Macron, a 39-year-old centrist, is seeking to attract support from the rightwing Republicans party and appointed a prime minister from their ranks, Edouard Philippe, on Monday.

Edouard Philippe, 46, a lawmaker and mayor of the port city of Le Havre, is from the moderate wing of the main centre-right party, The Republicans, and will provide a counterweight to former Socialist members of parliament who have joined Mr Macron's cause.

The announcement of the government of newly elected French President Emmanuel Macron has been delayed to Wednesday, his office said on Tuesday.

Additionally, it should also be noted that the center-left Socialist party received roughly 6 percent of the votes in the first round of the presidential contest, making the center-right the richer pond in which Macron can fish.

So far his appointments to his presidential team have all gone to men under 50, a lot of them graduates like him of France's elite ENA college for senior public servants - which has turned out generations of French politicians.

After a private meeting with his former mentor Hollande and his first speech as president, Macron headed up the rainy Champs Elysees in an army vehicle, waving to small crowds of wellwishers who gathered along the famed avenue.

El superintendente afirmó que las tres empresas habrían tenido ventas por un valor de $ 250.000 millones en un periodo de 10 años. Las empresas investigadas podrían enfrentar multas hasta de $73.000 millones si se comprueba la cartelización.

And that matters, because Macron is heading into June's legislative elections with a slate of candidates (roughly half of whom are women, including a female horse-mounted bullfighter and air force pilot who flew in Syria) for a party formed barely a year ago.

Philippe is close to former Prime Minister Alain Juppe.

Leftist firebrand Jean-Luc Melenchon said that Philippe's appointment as premier showed the right had been "annexed" by the tentacular Macron.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she has no intention of telling France what to do as new President Emmanuel Macron tries to revive his country's economy.

"He always said his government will have gender parity with people from various political backgrounds and from civil society", Richard Ferrand, Macron's campaign chief, said on France Inter radio Tuesday.

"A whole section of the centre and the right is ready to cross the line", the conservative Le Figaro daily wrote Tuesday.

But when pressed on specifics, McMaster confirmed certain essential aspects of the story and refused to address others. He discussed measures the United States has taken to suppress the threat, including military operations in Syria.

"Only 5% were MPs in the outgoing French parliament - and those MPs were all from the Socialist left".

Among the non-politicians to be offered roles is well-known environmentalist Nicolas Hulot, a source in the presidency said.

The chancellor's coalition is at odds over how to respond to his calls for closer European Union integration, with some conservatives fearful the euro zone could develop into a " transfer union" in which Germany is asked to pay for spendthrift states.

Merkel warmly welcomed the fourth president to occupy the Elysee Palace since she came to power 12 years ago. He later pledged to support Macron who emerged as a victor with an unassailable lead.

That should give a welcome burst of energy to the much-maligned European Union and efforts to fix it, even if Macron and Merkel won't necessarily agree on how.

Merkel, however, appeared keen to support Macron ahead of next month's general election in which he will faces a tough battle to win an outright majority.
