PARIS — French Prime Minister Francois Fillon resigned Saturday along with his government ahead of a long-planned Cabinet reshuffle.

The office of President Nicolas Sarkozy said in a two-line statement that the president accepted the resignation, "thus putting an end to Mr. Francois Fillon's functions."

The move was a formality because the prime minister must formally resign with his team before a new government can be put in place.
