The demonstrations for the free school brought down Mauroy in 1984, but the contestation of the pension reforms, the CPE or the labor law did not lead to the immediate departure of Matignon de Juppé, Raffarin, Villepin or de Valls.

Early departure for 12 prime ministers

Of the twenty-four heads of government who preceded Elisabeth Borne, half remained in place until the natural end of the presidential term or the legislature.

Some having been appointed at the end of their presidency, their retention is not necessarily synonymous with longevity.

This is the case of Maurice Couve de Murville, appointed less than a year before the departure of De Gaulle, or of Bernard Cazeneuve who only had time to work five months and nine days at the end of François' mandate. Holland.

Similarly, Pierre Messmer remained until the death of Pompidou, Raymond Barre until the defeat of Giscard, Jacques Chirac and Édouard Balladur until the end of each Mitterrandian mandate, Lionel Jospin and Dominique de Villepin until the end of two terms of Chirac.
