France's Overseas Territories Now Under the Administration of the Ministry of the Interior

Martiniquian Le Blog de [Moi] writes that under the new French cabinet, the Ministry of Overseas Territories has been abolished, or rather, folded in with the Ministry of the Interior to create the Ministry of the Interior, Overseas Territories and Collectivities.  This is a good thing, writes Le Blog de [Moi], since the old ministry was a holdover from the French colonial administration, and no distinction should be made between overseas French and those living in France proper.
