French President Emmanuel Macron chaired the first meeting of a cross-partisan government on Thursday, uniting right-wingers, left-wingers, old hands and new faces in a team whose first goal is to win parliamentary elections in June. The statement added that the have voiced readiness to develop "traditionally friendly" economic, politic. "It's not about controlling".

Castaner said he and the president are committed to letting journalists do their jobs. "I hear your concerns and will relay them".

"We have agreed that we want to develop a road map, a road map for the EU's medium term perspective, projects that cannot be created overnight", Merkel told reporters Monday during a joint press conference with Macron in Berlin. However, in no case the Elysee Palace may choose those of us, who have a right or do not have a right to cover trips overseas regardless the agenda (defense, diplomacy, economy, education or social issues).

It said none of Macron's predecessors at the Elysée had singled out reporters to accompany them on trips and said it was not up to the president or his staff to decide on "the internal functioning of the media organizations, their coverage choices and their approach".

He said the press will be allowed to attend the end of future Cabinet meetings and question the ministers in the Elysee courtyard starting next week.
