Two days too early. While the resignation of the government would not be expected before Monday, the Matignon website mistakenly posted a page on Saturday morning announcing the resignation of the Castex government.
The web page displayed by mistake on government.fr is “regularly used in the event of a redesign. It’s been prepared for a while now. It’s a ghost page that came up in Google searches. The government information service has contacted the search engine to rectify, ”says the government website.
“Since the report, the page has been dereferenced and unpublished. Only press releases are authentic. There is no reshuffle planned to our knowledge today, ”concludes the Prime Minister’s entourage. The appointment of a new Prime Minister, followed by that of the government, is expected at the beginning of the week.
