  • Description

    PRESIDENT DE GAULLE TODAY ACCEPTED THE RESIGNATION OF PRIME MINISTER GEORGES POMPIDOU. ACCORDING TO INFORMED SOURCES, M. POMPIDOU CONFIRMED THAT HIS SUCCESSOR WOULD BE M. MAURICE COUVE DE MURVILLE, AND URGED GAULLISTS TO CLOSE RANKS ROUND THE PRESIDENT - WHO HAD, EARLIER TODAY, PAID TRIBUTE TO HIM AND ALL HIS COLLEAGUES.

    OBSERVERS INTERPRET M. POMPIDOU'S REMARKS AS AN EFFORT TO PACIFY HIS AFFRONTED SUPPORTERS. IT IS BELIEVED THAT DISAGREEMENT BETWEEN HIM AND THE PRESIDENT AROSE FROM THE LATTER'S IDEAS ON IMPLEMENTING WORKERS' PARTICIPATION IN INDUSTRIAL MANAGEMENT.

    M. COUVE DE MURVILLE'S NOMINATION AS PRIME MINISTER WILL BE PUBLISHED IN TOMORROW'S OFFICIAL JOURNAL, AND HE IS EXPECTED TO PRESENT HIS NEW LIST OF MINISTERS TO THE PRESIDENT ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON OR SATURDAY MORNING.
