The government of French President Emmanuel Macron

Emmanuel Macron was born on December 21, 1977 in the city of Amiens.

He is the youngest president to survive a vote of no confidence voted in the National Assembly (the lower house of the French parliament), reported Reuters, quoted by BTA.

A total of 278 MPs voted in support of the vote of no confidence, with 287 votes needed to topple the government.

The move was announced after the government bypassed the legislature late last week to push through its controversial pension reform.
