French Justice Minister Taubira Quits Over Constitutional Change

France’s Justice Minister Christiane Taubira has resigned, the office of President Francois Hollande said in a statement.

Hollande and Taubira “decided on the need to put an end to her function at the moment that the debate on constitutional changes opens in the National Assembly,” according to the press release.

Taubira had openly criticized Hollande’s plans to change the constitution to allow dual-nationals accused of terrorism to be stripped of their citizenship.

Hollande named Jean-Jacques Urvoas as the new justice minister.
