The President of France, Emmanuel Macron, removed the Secretary of State for Territorial Collectives, Caroline Cayeux, from the Government on Monday, after allegedly the institution that monitors the assets of senior public officials found some inconsistencies.

The Elysee has limited itself to confirming in a statement the departure of Cayeux, “proposed by the Prime Minister”, Elisabeth Borne, without going into reasons. Dominique Faure, currently responsible for Rurality in the French Executive, will succeed him in the post.

Cayeux was already the subject of controversy after his appointment, after statements from 2013 came to light in which he criticized the legalization of same-sex marriage, claiming that it “goes against nature”. “I have many friends among all those people,” he declared then to try to distance himself from his past words.

His departure, however, stems from disagreements with the High Authority for Public Life (HATVP), according to the newspaper ‘Le Parisien’, which broke the news. An ally quoted by this newspaper has assured that “Caroline resigns to better defend herself and not hinder the work of the Government”, although the official note from the Presidency attributes the initiative to Borne and Macron and not to Cayeux.
