France’s Macron Denies Reports He Will Quit Hollande GovernmentMark Deen and Helene Fouquet
French Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron denied reports that he considered quitting President Francois Hollande’s government, saying to do so would be “indecent.”
“You don’t do blackmail with your resignation,” Macron said Wednesday on RMC radio. “I’m not a spoiled boy. I’ll be there until the end.”
Macron said he believed that more needs to be done to create jobs in France, though the plan announced by Hollande Monday is an important contribution to that effort.
Macron, 38, wouldn’t answer questions about whether he is considering running for president.
