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

Categories: Caribbean, Western Europe, France, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Governance, Politics

Martiniquian Le Blog de [Moi] writes that under the new French cabinet, the Ministry of Overseas Territories has been abolished [1], 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.
