  • Description

    HOLLAND'S NEW CARETAKER GOVERNMENT UNDER FINANCE EXPERT JELLE ZIJLSTRA WAS SWORN IN TODAY (TUESDAY). THE GOVERNMENT HAS A PARLIAMENTARY MANDATE TO TAKE ALL MEASURES TO AVERT AN ECONOMIC CRISIS.

    THE NEW GOVERNMENT, FORMED YESTERDAY AFTER TWO PREVIOUS ATTEMPTS TO END THE FIVE-WEEK CABINET CRISIS HAD FAILED, WILL PAVE THE WAY FOR GENERAL ELECTIONS IN FEBRUARY.

    PROFESSOR ZIJLSTRA, WHO IS 48 YEARS OLD, HOLDS THE KEY POSTS OF PREMIER AND FINANCE MINISTER IN THE NEW ADMINISTRATION.

    HE HAS SAID THAT HIS CABINET WILL NOT BE BOUND BY PARLIAMENT, BUT WILL TAKE ONLY MEASURES STRICTLY NECESSARY TO STEER THE ECONOMY OUT OF AN INFLATION AND BALANCE OF PAYMENTS CRISIS, AND THE SHADOW OF UNEMPLOYMENT AND INDUSTRIAL SHUTDOWNS. PROFESSOR ZIJLSTRA SAID THERE WAS NO NEED FOR PANIC, BUT ACTION WOULD HAVE TO BE TAKEN TO AVERT THE WORST DANGERS.

    THE NEW PRIME MINISTER, A PROTESTANT PARTY LEADER, INCLUDES IN HIS 13-MEMBER CATHOLIC-PROTESTANT COALITION SEVEN MINUTES FROM THE FORMER COALITION HEADED BY CATHOLIC PREMIER JOSEPH CALS.

    THE CALS CABINET FELL ON OCTOBER 14TH ON A CATHOLIC MOTION OF NO CONFIDENCE OVER THE 1967 BUDGET.
