PARIS (Reuters) - Bouygues (BOUY.PA: Quote) said on Monday that it had postponed a proposal for Clara Gaymard, head of General Electric (GE.N: Quote) in France, to join the board of the French construction group.

"This decision has been taken in agreement with Clara Gaymard," Bouygues said in a statement.

A spokesman for Bouygues said Gaymard's nomination would be proposed as soon as possible after General Electric's (GE.N: Quote) acquisition of Alstom's (ALSO.PA: Quote) energy unit was completed, to avoid sparking any debate about the transaction.

Bouygues holds 29 percent of Alstom.
