French Economy Minister Macron to resign on Tuesday: Source

PARIS (REUTERS) - France's outspoken economy minister Emmanuel Macron will resign later on Tuesday (Aug 30), a source close to the former investment banker told Reuters, confirming reports in local media.

The 38-year-old Macron had in May launched what he called a"Great March", a door-to-door campaign across France to collect voters' grievances ahead of 2017 presidential elections, in a new sign of his political ambitions.
