The 38-year-old said he had “seen at first hand the limits of our political system” and that quitting the government of President Francois Hollande would enable him “to be free” to push forward his own agenda. While Macron’s resignation clears the way for a presidential bid, it is unclear how wide the appeal really is of such a young man who has never held elected office.
