  • Description

    The Government of M. Bourges-Maunoury was defeated on Monday night by 279 votes to 253, and France is again without a government.

    M. Coty has been busy in consultation in an effort to find quickly a successor to Bourges-Maunoury. Among those called in by the President for talks were successively M. Sarrault, M. Le Troquer - president of the National Assembly - then M. Monnerville.

    After these meetings M. Coty attended a mass in honour of King Haakon of Norway.

    Later it was learned that President Coty will not send for M. Soustelle, the Gaullist leader, who precipitated the Government's defeat. Instead he may tomorrow send for a politician whom he will entrust with the task of conciliation among the groups.

    Otherwise he will send for a party leader and ask him to form a government. In the lobbies it was thought the men with the best chances of success were M. Pleven, M. Robert Schuman, or M. Cuy Mollet.
