  • Description

    THE FRENCH COMMUNIST PARTY HAS THROWN ALL ITS FORCES INTO THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION CAMPAIGN, AND ITS CANDIDATE, M. JACQUES DUCLOS, HAS BEEN ADDRESSING LARGE MEETINGS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY. HE SPOKE TO 7,000 PEOPLE AT MARSEILLES ON MONDAY (19 MAY) AND 9,000 AT LYON ON TUESDAY (20 MAY). YESTERDAY (21 MAY) HE HELD A MEETING AT BOULOGNE-BILLANCOURT, NEAR PARIS, HOME OF THE MASSIVE RENAULT MOTOR WORKS.

    M. DUCLOS' ELECTION CAMPAIGN HAS A DOUBLE OBJECTIVE, TO ENSURE THAT COMMUNIST SUPPORTERS ARE NOT TEMPTED TO VOTE FOR THE INTERIM PRESIDENT, M. ALAIN POHER, IN ORDER TO OPPOSE THE GAULLIST CANDIDATE, M. GEORGES POMPIDOU, AND AT THE SAME TIME TO ATTRACT VOTERS FROM THE NON-COMMUNIST LEFT WING.

    AT BOULOGNE-BILLANCOURT HE ATTACKED HIGH PRICES AND HOUSING COSTS, AND DREW HIS HEARERS' ATTENTION TO AN ELECTION BROADCAST WHICH HE HAD RECORDED FOR FUTURE TRANSMISSION ON RADIO AND TELEVISION, COVERING THE SAME GROUND.
