  • Description

    A NEW, YOUNG CABINET, MARKED BY POLITICAL MODERATION AND A TECHNICAL APPROACH TO PROBLEMS, TOOK THE OATH OF OFFICE IN SPAIN TODAY. THE CABINET, PRODUCT OF GENERAL FRANCO'S MOST RADICAL RESHUFFLE IN HIS 30 YEARS IN POWER, INCLUDES AS FOREIGN MINISTERS SENOR GREGORIO LOPEZ BRAVO, A MAN WHO IS EXPECTED TO CONCENTRATE MORE ON SPANISH ENTRY TO THE COMMON MARKET THAN ON THE PURSUIT OF SPAIN'S GIBRALTAR CLAIM.

    MOST OF THE NEW MINISTERS ARE AGED BETWEEN 40 AND 50 THEIR SELECTION APPEARED A TRIUMPH FOR VICE-PRESIDENT ADMIRAL CARRERO BLANCO AND HIS POLITICAL CHIEF-OF-STAFF, SENOR LAUREANO LOPEZ RODO, MINISTER-WITHOUT-PORTFOLIO IN CHARGE OF THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PLAN.

    BOTH MEN KEEP THEIR CABINET POSTS AND THREE PROTEGES OF SENOR LOPEZ RODO, WHO HAVE BEEN WORKING AS OFFICIALS IN HIS ECONOMIC PLANNING DEPARTMENT, WERE NAMED MINISTERS OF INDUSTRY, AGRICULTURE AND HOUSING.

    THE CABINET BASICALLY REMAINS A COALITION OF THE VARIOUS FORCES WHICH SUPPORT THE FRANCO REGIME, BUT THE EMPHASIS IS ON EUROPEAN-MINDED TECHNOCRATS AND MODERATES.
