    THE GAULLIST POLITICAL MOVEMENT LAST NIGHT (TUESDAY) LAUNCHED ITS 486 CANDIDATES FOR NEXT MONTH'S GENERAL ELECTIONS AT A PRIVATELY ARRANGED AND ELABORATELY STAGED RALLY IN A PARIS SPORTS STADIUM.

    AMONG LEADING GAULLISTS ADDRESSING THE RALLY WERE FRENCH PRIME MINISTER, GEORGES POMPIDOU, AND MINISTER OF STATE FOR CULTURE, ANDRE MALRAUX.

    SEVERAL THOUSAND INVITED SUPPORTERS GAVE AN ENTHUSIASTIC RECEPTION TO THE CANDIDATES AND SPEAKERS.

    M. POMPIDOU STRESSED THE UNITY OF THE GAULLIST MOVEMENT, WHICH IS FIGHTING EVERY CONSTITUENCY IN FRANCE IN THE POLLS FOR A NEW NATIONAL ASSEMBLY ON MARCH 5 AND 12.

FIRSTLY MAINTENANCE OF THE POLITICAL INSTITUTIONS OF THE FIFTH REPUBLIC, INCLUDING THE ELECTION OF THE PRESIDENT BY UNIVERSAL SUFFRAGE. SECONDLY A FOREIGN POLICY BASED ON NATIONAL INDEPENDENCE, ALLOWING RELATIONS TO BE IMPROVED WITH ALL COUNTRIES INCLUDING THOSE OF EAST EUROPE, AND THIRDLY A DOMESTIC POLICY OF PROGRESS, PARTICULARLY IN SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH, STABILISATION OF THE CURRENCY, AND IMPROVEMENT OF SOCIAL CONDITIONS FOR ALL.
