PARIS (Reuters) - The head of the Paris Autolib Velib Metropole syndicate will propose ending the electric car hire scheme contract with the Bollore group (BOLL.PA), daily newspaper Le Parisien quoted her as saying on its website.

Catherine Baratti-Elbaz said she would propose to the local council representatives in the syndicate to vote for ending the contract at a meeting on June 21.

Municipal authorities and the Bollore group disagree about who is responsible for budget shortfalls and operational problems with the pioneering electric car hire scheme.
