  • Description

    In Paris, the leader of the Gaullist Party, Jacques Chirac, announced he was pleased with the outcome of his 40 minutes meeting with President Giscard d'Estaing on Wednesday (7 December). Mr. Chirac has asked for the meeting of the Elysee Palace to alert the President to the strength of left-wing parties three months before the next general election.

    SYNOPSIS: Awaited with apprehension, this was the first meeting between the two leaders since Mr. Chirac resigned as Prime Minister 18 months ago. Reports beforehand said the President was determined to show he would reject Gaullist pressure to chance government policy.

    When he emerged, Mr. Chirac said he would not comment beyond saying he was very satisfied with the meeting, which he thought had been powerful. The important thing was that he thought the President had understood his views. And this, was why he was pleased.

    Observers said the meeting had been brief because President Giscard had not wanted to show any favours to Mr. Chirac, who wants to be confirmed as the real political leader of the ruling coalition party.
