  • Description

    GEORGES POMPIDOU AND ALAIN POHER YESTERDAY (5 JUNE) HELD THEIR FINAL CONSULTATIONS BEFORE PLUNGING INTO THE OFFICIAL CAMPAIGN FOR THE DECISIVE SECOND ROUND OF FRANCE'S PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

    FRANCE FACES A WEEK OF INTENSE POLITICAL ACTIVITY LEADING UP TO THE JUNE 15 BALLOT TO CHOOSE A SUCCESSOR TO GENERAL DE GAULLE. BUT DEVELOPMENTS SINCE LAST SUNDAY'S FIRST ROUND HAVE OPENED UP THE POSSIBILITY THAT, DESPITE THE MOMENTOUS ISSUE AT STAKE IN THE VOTE, THERE MAY BE A HIGH PROPORTION OF ABSTENTIONS IN THE SECOND ROUND.

    THE COMMUNISTS, WHO GAINED A SURPRISING 22 PER CENT OF THE VOTE, HAVE URGED THEIR SUPPORTERS TO STAY AT HOME ON JUN 15.

    M. POMPIDOU, WHO HAS BEEN HELPED IN RECENT DAYS BOTH BY THE COMMUNIST ABSTENTION AND THE RALLYING OF RIGHT-WING SUPPORT, YESTERDAY (5 JUNE) ADDRESSED MEETINGS OF GAULLIST DEPUTIES AND HIS SUPPORTERS AT THE PALACE HOTEL IN PARIS. LATER HE TALKED TO NEWSMEN.
