France's Interior Minister Gerard Collomb announced Tuesday that he will stand down next year to run again for his old job as mayor of the city of Lyon, in yet another blow to President Emmanuel Macron.The announcement from Collomb, a political heavyweight and one of Macron's most loyal ministers, comes after popular environment minister Nicolas Hulot quit last month and as the president's approval ratings have plummeted. Collomb, 71, previously served as Lyon mayor for 16 years until Macron poached him for the interior ministry.A Kantar Sofres Onepoint poll released Monday found only 19 percent had a positive view of Macron, with 60 percent expressing a negative opinion.
