Macron returns to work

Macron returns to work - French President Emmanuel Macron has returned to work this week facing difficult choices as he seeks to bounce back from a summer plagued by scandal with a new push for economic change. Ministers gathered at the Elysée Palace on Wednesday for a first cabinet meeting since the summer holiday.  The latest public opinion polls at the end of July have seen Macron's popularity rate at its lowest level since he was elected in May 2017.
