PARIS (AP) —

France's new prime minister has won a confidence vote, promising an economic turnaround built on plans to allow corporations to keep more profits and to cut taxes for all households.

Manuel Valls appeared before the Socialist-led National Assembly for the first time since he was given the job in a government reshuffle triggered by his party's dismal showing in local elections.

The vote was 306-239, with 11 Socialists abstaining.
