THE WEEK AHEAD

OTTAWA : A Woman Takes Over

June 22, 1993

Canada's prime minister-elect, Kim Campbell, faces a busy week as she must assemble her Cabinet before being sworn in as Canada's first female prime minister on Friday.

The 46-year-old lawyer has taken a low-key approach since winning the leadership of the ruling Progressive Conservative party last week, trying among other things to patch up her relationship with Jean Charest, 34, the current minister of environment and the man she defeated for the top job.

Her Cabinet appointments will be particularly important since this will be the team she takes into an early national election she is expected to call toward summer's end.
