A Directory Rules France

When the Jacobin government fell the power passed on to the wealthier middle classes.

Under the new constitution drafted by them, the non-propertied sections of the society were not given the right to vote provided for two-elected legislative council.

A Directory – an executive made up of five members – was appointed.

This system was introduced to check the concentration of power in one man.

The frequent clashes between the Directors and the legislative councils resulted in the dismissal of the government itself.

The political instability of the Directory paved the way for military dictatorship of Napoleon Bonaparte.
