The Ayrault government was the Government of France as headed by Jean-Marc Ayrault. It was originally formed on 16 May 2012 by the presidential decree of President François Hollande.[1] It was composed of members from the Socialist Party (30), the EELV (2) and the Radical Party of the Left (2). This was the first French government to respect gender equality, with equal male and female posts except the Prime Minister.

Following a landslide defeat in the French mayoral elections, the second Ayrault government was dissolved on 31 March 2014.[2] Manuel Valls was chosen by Hollande to form the next cabinet.
