French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday reshuffled his cabinet in a bid to buttress his waning support.

"French President Emmanuel Macron made a cabinet reshuffle today, in which Christophe Castaner, one of his supporters and leader of the ruling party, was appointed minister of interior," Reuters reported.

"This amendment aims at stabilizing the government after a series of resignations as well as reviving the course of reforms, which witnessed signs of stumbling," the report added.

Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire, who was in charge of a fraudulent effort to reform the Euro Zone, and Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian are retaining their posts.
