  • Description

    FRENCH SOCIALIST PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, M. GASTON DEFFERRE, ANNOUNCED YESTERDAY (SUNDAY), HE WILL MAKE NO DEALS WITH THE COMMUNISTS IN ORDER TO WIN OVER THEIR FIVE MILLION VOTES, IN THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS TO BE HELD AT THE LATEST IN 1965.

    M. DEFFERRE WAS SPEAKING AT A CONGRESS IN MARSEILLES, OF THE BOUCHES-DU-RHONE SOUTHERN FRENCH DEPARTMENT SOCIALIST FEDERATION. THE MEETING APPROVED HIS PRESIDENTIAL BID BY ACCLAMATION.

    HE DECLARED THAT HE WOULD HOLD "NO CONVERSATIONS, NO NEGOTIATIONS", WITH THE COMMUNISTS OVER THEIR "UNITY OF ACTION" PROGRAMME, BECAUSE THE FRENCH PEOPLE ARE OPPOSED TO IT. HE CHARGED THE COMMUNISTS WITH PUTTING UP STIFF CONDITIONS TO ANY LEFT-WING CANDIDATE, IN ORDER TO DRAW HIM INTO AN ELECTORAL PACT.

    M. DEFFERRE, MAYOR MARSEILLES, IS CONSIDERED CERTAIN TO WIN THE SOCIALIST PARTY'S SUPPORT AT A SPECIAL CONGRESS TO BE HELD ON FEBRUARY 1-2. HIS STRONG STAND AGAINST A PACT WITH THE COMMUNISTS IS LIKELY TO WIN THE VOTES OF CENTRE GROUPS OPPOSED TO BOTH GAULLISM AND COMMUNISM.
