Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 3, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta y, June 3, WO THf LETHBRIDGt HERALD IT On To Avoid Isolation French Communist Party Fighting To Political Sis By JONATHAN KKMJV PARIS (Reulers) The p r e n c li Communist party, reeling after a bitter public dispute, is campaigning to avoid isolation in the polilieal wilderness where it spent many of the post-S ceo n d World War years. With its eye on important, municipal elections next year the party is trying to link up with other Opposition groups in a left-wing electoral alli- ance. The conclusion of a national agreement with otter left- wing groups is the aim put forward to the party's central committee by Senator Jacques Duclos, one of 'itb senior inemliers. But the party, which has counted on the support of about 20 per cent of Uie voters since the war. faces an uphill, struggle in its drive for unity among UK divided Opposition parties. Preliminary negotiations have shown the difficulties in the way of re-creating the left-wing alliance which helped Socialist Francois Mit- terrand force Gen. Charles de Gaulle into a second-round ballot in the presidential election. SIZE A PHOULEM One problem is the sheer size of the Communist party which dominates all tha other Opposition groups. In the 1969 presidential poll for instance. Duclos won 21 per ceoit of the vote for the Communists while Socialist Gaston Deferre took only five per cent. Another obstacle has been the French party's attitude to ward events in Czechoslova- liia. The Communists at first Hie Warsaw pact invasion of Czechoslova Ida but recently have empha- sized the need for solidarity with the Soviet: Union.
