French PM at risk as Macron to unveil reshuffle


French President Emmanuel Macron was on Monday preparing a long-awaited cabinet reshuffle with the prime minister's job on the line but uncertainty remaining to the last minute over the head of state's intentions.

Commentators see the reshuffle as essential to relaunch Macron's centrist presidency for its final three years, and prevent him becoming a "lame duck" leader.

Since he defeated the far-right to win a second term of office in 2022, Macron has faced protests over unpopular pension reforms, the loss of his overall majority in parliamentary elections and controversy over immigration legislation.
