Macron's Light Schedule Prompts Questions From French Media, Twitter Criticism

French President Emmanuel Macron's unexpected decision to postpone a meeting with his ministers to take a four day break sparked questions about the 40 year-year-old's stamina for the stressful job.

Macron began his break following a working lunch with lawmakers in Hauts-de-France on Tuesday, with no meetings, public events or speeches scheduled for four days ahead of an upcoming six-day, 11 department, 17 city tour for centenary commemorations of the end of the First World War, Le Figaro has reported.

Voicing its surprise, the newspaper pointed out that this was the first time Macron has done anything like this in his close to one-and-a-half years in office. It also pointed out that "exceptionally, the president even advanced the Council of Ministers meeting," normally taking place Wednesdays, to next Tuesday.
