History
Predecessor First Philippe government

The second Philippe government is the forty-first Government of France. It is the second government formed by Édouard Philippe under President Emmanuel Macron, following the 2017 legislative elections and the dissolution of the first Philippe government on 19 June 2017.

The second Philippe government was formed following scandal among ministers during the first Philippe government. La République En Marche ! allies Democratic Movement were facing scandal following allegations that the party used EU funds to pay party workers.[1] Defense minister Sylvie Goulard was the first to step down, resigning on 20 June, 2017.[2] The following day, Minister of Justice Francois Bayrou and European Affairs minister, Marielle de Sarnez stepped down.[3]

Richard Ferrand, Minister of Territorial Cohesion, stepped down on 19 June 2017 following Le Canard Enchaîné publishing allegations of nepotism on 24 May 2017.[4] Macron defended Ferrand despite the allegations and public polling showing that 70% of respondents wanted Ferrand to step down.[5] On 1 July 2017, a regional prosecutor announced that authorities had launched a preliminary investigation into Ferrand.[6] Ferrand responded to the allegations saying everything was "legal, public, and transparent".[7][8] Ferrand was one of the founding members of La République En Marche and is currently serving as general secretary for the party.
