SOME COMMENTATORS THINK THAT PRESIDENT DE GAULLE INTENDS TO INTRODUCE CONSTITUTIONAL CHANGES THAT WILL TURN FRANCE INTO A UNITED STATES TYPE OF PRESIDENTIAL REPUBLIC AND MR DEBRE WOULD BECOME VICE-PRESIDENT.

    SO FAR THERE HAS BEEN NO COMMENT ON THESE SPECULATIONS FROM THE PRESIDENT OR HIS NEW PRIME MINISTER.
