 French Fourth Republic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It was in many ways a revival of the Third Republic which had ruled before World War II, and as such suffered many of the same problems, such as very short ministries that made policy planning difficult.
Although the Fourth Republic oversaw an era of great economic growth in France and the rebuilding of its industry, it is best remembered for its constant political instability and inability to take bold decisions in controversial areas — most notably, decolonization.
Right-wing elements in the French Army, led by General Jacques Massu seized power in Algiers and threatened to conduct a parachute assault on Paris unless Charles de Gaulle, the WWII hero, was placed in charge of the Republic.

By the late 1870s, with public opinion swinging heavily in favour of a republic, the President of the Republic, Patrice MacMahon, duc de Magenta, himself a monarchist, made one last desparate attempt to salvage the monarchical cause by dismissing the republic-orientated prime minister and appointing a monarchist duke to office.
The Republic was also rocked by a series of crises, none more famous that the Dreyfus Affair, in which it was alleged that a Jewish officer in the French Army was a German spy.

A HISTORIAN of Nigeria's Fourth Republic would be remiss to omit the cruel quality of evil that overran the land in the early years.
It is true that the massacres at Odi and the scorched earth attack on Zaki-Biam had the imprimatur of state-authorised brutality ; but there is little surprise that the elements of the state that allegedly carried out those ghastly reprisals were sourced from the military, the ultimate savage class.
The worrisome character of evil in the Fourth Republic is the sudden addition of previous havens to the growing list of forbidden places.

The coming into force of the new constitution with the inauguration of the Fourth Republic and the installation of Jerry Rawlings as the first popularly elected president of Ghana on January 7, 1993, opened a new chapter in Ghana.
Indeed, the NPP has urged its supporters to familiarize themselves with their constitutional rights, to criticize the government when it is wrong, and, whenever necessary, to resort to the courts and not to violence.
Such tactics on the part of the opposition are consistent with the principal concerns raised by Rawlings at the inauguration of the Fourth Republic.

If the country wants to avert the inevitable created by the fourth republic political offices holders’ in-order to start on a clean slate, all the political office holders that served under the fourth republic should be banned from future politics, if not for life but at least for the next fifteen years to come.

 Pierre Frank: France Under the Fourth Republic (1947)
It is much easier to elect Deputies and Councillors of the Republic than to form a government; the French Union is being realized in life by plunging the Viet Nam in fire and blood; the application of the Monnet Plan presupposes many conditions, none of which is present.
This became even more apparent two weeks later, when on the occasion of elections to the Council of the Republic, everything possible was done to regain for the MRP the position of “first party of France” which it lost to the CP during the November 10 elections.
The original from which this text was transcribed is slightly damaged and the words in square brackets in paragraphs 3 and 7 were difficult to decipher and had to be reconstructed from the context.
