  • Description

    A CABINET CRISIS IN THE SOUTH VIETNAM GOVERNMENT TODAY (FRIDAY) CAUSED GENERAL MAXWELL TAYLOR, THE UNITED STATES AMBASSADOR, TO POSTPONE A PLANNED TRIP TO WASHINGTON. THE CHIEF OF STATE, MR PHAN KHAC SUU HAS REFUSED TO APPROVE A CABINET RESHUFFLE ANNOUNCED LAST TUESDAY BY THE PRIME MINISTER, DR. PHAN HUY QUAT.

    THE RESHUFFLE INVOLVED THE REPLACEMENT OF FOUR MEMBERS OF THE CABINET. DR. QUAT TOLD THE COUNCIL THAT THE NEW LINE-UP WAS A COMPROMISE BETWEEN THE NEED FOR BROAD REPRESENTATION AND INCREASED EFFICIENCY. HE SAID THAT THE GOVERNMENT HAD SETTLED ITS POLITICAL PROBLEMS IN A RELATIVELY EFFECTIVE WAY AND THAT THE INTERNAL SITUATION HAD BEEN PROGRESSING "WITH STABILITY HAVING BRIGHTER AND BRIGHTER PROSPECTS."
    THE NEW APPOINTMENTS WERE: MINISTER OF INFORMATION, DINH TRINH CHINH; MINISTER OF THE INTERIOR, TRAN VAN THOAN; MINISTER OF RURAL AFFAIRS, LAM AN TRI; AND MINISTER OF ECONOMY, NGUYEN TRUNG TRINH.

    NR. SUU HAS SINCE CLAIMED THAT THE PRIME MINSTER HAD ACTED UNCONSTITUTIONALLY IN REPLACING THE MINISTERS OF THE INTERIOR AND ECONOMY WITHOUT EITHER OF THE MINISTERS SUBMITTING THEIR RESIGNATION.

    SINCE THEN, THE SITUATION HAS BEEN IN STALEMATE, WITH MR. SUU REFUSING TO APPROVE THE CHANGES, AND THE GOVERNMENT WORKING BEHIND THE SCENES TO RESOLVE THE DISPUTE.
