American president. Conforming to
custom, there will not, be any party

tieilselves--300 senators and 621
deputes--were electe(I independently
of any presidential issue, the eventual
candidater being unknown when the
members of parliament were chosen.
Only occasionally the party groups in!
parliament, meet to decide oil candi
dates in advance of the convening of
th( "national asseibly" or the "con
gress or Versaille'," as the electoral
body is called, the latter term being
apilied because Ihe electors he/d their
