Former Minister Brigitte Bourguignon appointed to the Social Affairs Inspectorate

Former Health Minister Brigitte Bourguignon, who had to leave the government in early July after her defeat in the legislative elections, has been appointed to the General Inspectorate of Social Affairs (Igas), the ministry told AFP on Wednesday.

Less than two months after her departure tinged with bitterness, Ms. Bourguignon returns to the bosom of the Ministry of Health, by the grace of an appointment “outside round” (without competition) recorded in the Council of Ministers, confirming advanced information from Tuesday by franceinfo.

Beaten in June by her opponent from the National Rally, Christine Engrand, in her 6th constituency of Pas-de-Calais (for only 56 votes), she had to give up the post of Minister of Health which she had only held since the end of may.

This ministerial portfolio was a consecration for this 63-year-old daughter of a boilermaker, after a five-year term of loyal service, first as President of the Social Affairs Committee of the National Assembly, then as Minister Delegate for Autonomy of the elderly since July 2020.

Joined Emmanuel Macron in 2017, Ms. Bourguignon had begun her political ascent in the ranks of the Socialist Party: a member in 1989, she became in 2001 deputy mayor of her hometown, Boulogne-sur-Mer, then deputy in 2012.

“Not loaded with diplomas” according to her formula, she had first worked there at the municipal center for social action, before creating three social integration structures in the Boulonnais.
