  • Description

    THE NEW PROVISIONAL EXECUTIVE, THE 12-MAN BODY - NINE MOSLEMS AND THREE EUROPEANS - WHICH WILL ADMINISTER ALGERIA UNTIL A SELF DETERMINATION REFERENDUM CAN BE HELD, PROBABLY AT THE END OF JUNE, WAS OFFICIALLY INSTALLED AT ROCHER NOIR, THE FORTIFIED ADMINISTRATIVE HEADQUARTERS OUTSIDE ALGIERS, ON APRIL 7.

    IT TOOK ONLY 11 MINUTES TO INSTALL THE NEW EXECUTIVE, WITH A SPEECH BY THE NEW HIGH COMMISSIONER, M. CHRISTIAN FOUCHET, WHO TOLD HIS COLLEAGUES THAT FRANCE AND ALGERIA WERE BANKING ON THEIR EFFORTS. IN HIS REPLY, M. ABDERRACHMAN FARES, THE EXECUTIVE PRESIDENT, STRESSED THE EXECUTIVE'S DETERMINATION TO GAIN FOR THE COUNTRY INDEPENDENCE WITHOUT A BLOODBATH. "ALGERIA MUST NOT BECOME ANOTHER CONGO," HE ADDED.

    THIS EXECUTIVE IS AT THE HEAD OF AN ELABORATE SYSTEM DESIGNED AT THE CEASE-FIRE TALKS AT EVIAN, FRANCE TO RESTORE ORDER AND PREPARE THE WAY FOR SELF DETERMINATION. THE HIGH COMMISSIONER, REPRESENTING THE REPUBLIC OF FRANCE, WILL HAVE AT THIS DISPOSAL FRENCH FORCES IN ALGERIA TO MEET EXTREME EMERGENCIES.

    WHILE THE EXECUTIVE HAD ITS FIRST MEETING, THE OUTRAGES AND MURDERS CONTINUED IN ORAN AND ALGIERS, UNDERLINING FOR THE TWELVE MEN THE DIFFICULT AND DANGEROUS TASK THAT LIES IN THE MONTH AHEAD.
