* Prime Minister Edouard Philippe resigned to allow the reshuffle to take place
* Chief behind the end of France's lockdown will take over as prime minister

French President Emmanuel Macron has named Jean Castex as the new prime minister after Edouard Philippe resigned from the position.

Castex, who led France's lockdown reopening strategy, will take over amid a cabinet reshuffle as Macron tries to bolster his popularity for his final two years in office.

Macron said he wanted to 'reinvent' his presidency last month following a disastrous defeat in nationwide municipal elections to the Green Party.
