  • Description

    THE FRENCH CABINET WAS RESHUFFLED BY THE PRIME MINISTER. M. GEORGES POMPIDOU, TODAY (FRIDAY) AND THE MAIN CASUALTY WAS THE MINISTER FOR THE INTERIOR, M. CHRISTIAN FOUCHET. THE ONLY OTHER MAJOR FIGURE TO LEAVE THE FRENCH CABINET WAS THE MINISTER FOR JUSTICE, M. LOUISE JOXE. THE TWO MAIN TARGETS OF RIOTING PARIS STUDENTS HAVE NOW BEEN ACHIEVED. THEY CALLED FOR THE SACKING FOR M. FOUCHET AND THE MINISTER FOR EDUCATION, M. ALAIN PEYREFITTE, WHO RESIGNED LAST WEEK.

    THE NEW MINISTER FOR JUSTICE IS LEFT-WING GAULLIST, RENE CAPITANT, WHO ONLY LAST WEEK RESIGNED AS A DEPUTY AFTER SAYING THAT HE COULD NO LONGER SUPPORT THE POMPIDOU ADMINISTRATION.

    M. FOUCHET IS REPLACED BY FORMER PLANNING MINISTER, RAYMOND MARCELLIN, AND THE NEW MINISTER OF EDUCATION IS M. FRANCOIS ORTOLI.

    ANOTHER MAJOR CHANGE IN THE NEW CABINET IS THE MOVE TO THE VITAL FINANCE MINISTRY OF M. COUVE DE MURVILLE, WHO HAS BEEN FRENCH FOREIGN MINISTER SINCE GENERAL DE GAULLE CAME TO POWER 10 YEARS AGO. HE WAS DONE A STRAIGHT SWITCH OF JOBS WITH M. MICHEL DEBRE, WHO NOW MOVES TO THE FOREIGN OFFICE.

    THE CABINET RESHUFFLE FOLLOWS GOVERNMENT PROMISES OF CHANGE IN FACE OF THE INDUSTRIAL, STUDENT AND POLITICAL CRISIS GRIPPING FRANCE AND THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF A GENERAL ELECTION NEXT MONTH.
