  • Description

    WEST GERMANY'S OUTGOING DEFENCE MINISTER, HERR FRANZ-JOSEF STRAUSS, ANNOUNCED IN MUNICH TODAY (FRIDAY) THAT HE WAS RENOUNCING OFFICE IN HIS COUNTRY'S NEXT CABINET.

    THE DECISION WAS MADE KNOWN IN A STATEMENT HANDED TO JOURNALISTS AFTER A FOUR-HOUR MEETING OF THE PARTY EXECUTIVE OF THE CHRISTIAN SOCIAL UNION, THE BAVARIAN CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATIC PARTY, OF WHICH HERR STRAUSS IS CHAIRMAN. AFTER THE MEETING HERR STRAUSS WOULD ONLY SAY, IN ENGLISH: "NO COMMENT."
    HERR STRAUSS HAS BEEN WEST GERMANY'S DEFENCE MINISTER FROM OCTOBER 1956 UNTIL THE ACTION AGAINST THE HAMBURG NEWS MAGAZINE "DER SPIEGEL" BROUGHT ABOUT THE FALL OF DR ADENAUER'S COALITION GOVERNMENT.

    A FREE DEMOCRATIC PARTY SPOKESMAN SAID IN BONN THIS EVENING THE DEPARTURE OF HERR STRAUSS WOULD MAKE EASIER THE FORMATION OF A NEW GOVERNMENT. THE PARTY HAD REFUSED TO JOIN A NEW CABINET IN WHICH HE HELD ANY POST.

    THE TASK OF WORKING OUT A NEW COALITION CABINET UNDER DR ADENAUER IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN IN EARNEST AT THE INTER-PARTY MEETING ARRANGED IN BONN FOR MONDAY. TALKS LAST NIGHT IN THE CHANCELLOR'S OFFICE BETWEEN THE TWO PARTIES FAILED TO MAKE ANY HEADWAY.
