Hollande Not Pushing on ReformsHollande Not Pushing on Reforms

Emmanuel Macron, who resigned from the French government on Tuesday, criticized President Francois Hollande’s government in a newspaper interview for not pushing hard enough for reforms, Reuters reported. “I kept trying, proposing, pushing ... If you want to succeed you cannot leave work half done, and unfortunately many things were left half done! The choice was made not to launch a second wave of economic reforms as I was proposing it,” he told Le Journal du Dimanche. Macron, a 38-year old former investment banker tipped as a potential candidate in next year’s presidential election, said he needed to be free “to transform France” next year.
