Fresh crisis as France's Hollande orders PM to form new cabinet Fresh crisis as France's Hollande orders PM to form new cabinet

 France was thrown into fresh crisis on Monday after President Francois Hollande told his prime minister to form a new government, following a much-criticised show of insubordination by the country's firebrand economy minister, AFP reports.

Hollande ordered Prime Minister Manuel Valls to form a new cabinet "consistent with the direction he has set for the country", the presidency said in a statement.

It did not give any reasons, but the move came after Economy Minister Arnaud Montebourg bad-mouthed the country's economic direction and ally Germany at the weekend in a move that angered Valls.

While Valls himself has not reacted, his entourage said Sunday that Montebourg had crossed a line.

The presidency said the new cabinet line-up would be announced on Tuesday.
