  • Description

    With only just over a week to go before the French Presidential elections M. Jacques Chaban-Delmas, on the right wing, has been fighting hard to revive his popularity - now flagging badly according to the opinion polls - while on Thursday, 25 April M. Valery Giscard D'Estaing and M. Francois Mitterrand, the main left-wing candidate, jabbed at each other fircely in a radio debate.

    M. Chaban-Delmas went canvassing in the Paris suburb of Sarcelles on Thursday, 25 April. In a speech he returned to two familiar themes - M.Giscard D'Estaing's mismanagement of the economy as Finance Minister and M.Mitterrand's support from the Communist Party. On the same day the opinion polls showed support for M. Chaban-Delmas had fallen by two percent.

    On the same day - in a radio debate - the other two main candidates, M. Giscard D'Estaing and M.Mitterrand, engaged in a lively radio debate. Below is a full peraphrase of their argument.

    Political commentators now predict that M. Chaban-Delmas will be eliminated in the first poll and that there will be a run-off between M. Giscard D'Estaing and M. Mitterrand.
