More Splits

The disunion that has afflicted the trade unions (see previous post) has also struck the anti-university reform movement. The national coordinating committee has asserted that it directs the movement, not the UNEF, which has agreed to negotiate with the government. The UNEF's effort to patch up the split, which was obvious from the beginning, appears to have failed.

Meanwhile, Jean-Marie Cavada, a MoDem European deputy, will head the UMP list in the 12th arrondissement, indicating a rift with François Bayrou, whose party appears to be disintegrating under him.
