MisleadingEdit

This seems to be a problem with the template, but Raymond Barre was absolutely not the incumbent prime minister in these elections. What had happened was that Mitterrand had beaten Giscard in the presidential elections, and then had immediately dismissed Barre and appointed Mauroy as prime minister. He then dissolved parliament and called new elections, which the Socialists won. The current statement is simply untrue. john k (talk) 22:41, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
