PARIS (AP) -- A French prosecutor has decided to close the case of Richard Ferrand, a political ally to French President Emmanuel Macron who faced an investigation for alleged conflict of interest.

The prosecutor of the city of Brest, Jean-Philippe Recappe, said Friday the preliminary investigation showed there were no grounds to press charges.

Ferrand, a former Socialist who played a pivotal role in Macron's presidential campaign, stepped down as minister for territorial cohesion in June after media revelations about his past business practices as head of a Brittany insurance company, before he became a lawmaker in 2012.

He now leads the Macron's majority at the National Assembly, France's lower house of parliament.

Macron has made a point of introducing more ethics into French politics.
