Mollet's Uncertain Future

April 1956
New Republic;4/23/56, Vol. 134 Issue 17, p7
This article presents information on the political future of Socialist Premier Guy Mollet, of French National Assembly. new Premier has certainly done his best to satisfy a variety of viewpoints. He has soothed the Catholics by not permitting his cabinet to take an official stand on the issue of state subsidies for Catholic private schools and further gratified the Catholic MRP Party by refusing to give the Foreign Ministry to his principal ally, Pierre Mendés- France. Mollet's'economic platform is nowhere near as radical as the program outlined in the Socialist Party's campaign. Current criticism of Mollet emanates not only from the no-man's land between Communism and Socialism, but also from within the Republican Front itself.
