The Executive Commission of the French Republic was a short-lived body and jointly head of state of France during the Second Republic. All members were equal and served together as co-heads of state.
The Commission acted as head of state from May 10 to June 24, 1848, between governments of Jacques-Charles Dupont de l'Eure and Louis-Eugène Cavaignac (who also were provisional heads of state). The Commission lacked support in the National Assembly : it soon found itself at odds with the conservative majority and effectively unable to properly govern. The closure of the National Workshops, by leading to the June Days Uprising, sealed the doom of the Executive Commission. Judging the Commission unable to quell the uprising, the Assembly effectively dissolved it on June 24 by a vote of no confidence and gave full powers to General Louis Eugène Cavaignac.
