Le Drian is expected to be the only survivor from Francois Hollande's little-loved Socialist government.

French President Emmanuel Macron has unveiled on Wednesday a diverse cabinet line-up of 11 men and 11 women as was promised during his campaign.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe, whom President Macron named on Monday, will lead the government, at least until the parliamentary elections scheduled for June.

Jean-Yves Le Drian, who was Socialist President Francois Hollande's defense minister for five years, becomes foreign minister.

For the post of interior minister, he picked Mr Gerard Collomb, the Lyon Mayor who was one of the first Socialists to be a vocal supporter of Mr Macron.

His appointment of Le Maire as economy minister and fellow Republicans MP Gerald Darmanin as public accounts minister was seen as an attempt to neuter his right-wing opponents, still reeling from their defeat in the presidential vote.

Macron campaigned on promises of cleaning up French politics, and says he will require ministers to sign a commitment to "integrity and morality".

French p resident Emmanuel Macron has gathered his Cabinet for its first meeting - an assembly which looks significantly different to its predecessors.

He is a member of the Republicans, a mainstream-right party whose candidate Macron beat in the first round of the election.

Alexis Kohler (Ko-LAIR), Macron's general secretary at the presidential Elysee Palace, made the announcement Wednesday. The MEP was among the first politicians to support Macron when he set up his political movement En Marche, or On the Move.

Olympic fencing champion Laura Flessel, 45, and from the French island of Guadeloupe, was named sports minister.

The choice of Philippe is aimed at drawing more defectors from The Republicans, in the same way as Macron's decision not to put up an REM candidate in Manuel Valls' constituency pulls the Socialist former prime minister closer, and makes it hard for a divided left to re-unite.

She had never been a lawmaker in the French parliament and has no government experience - both attributes that could be either a strength or weakness for Macron's fledgling government.

This item has been corrected to show that Goulard is 52 years old, not 59.
