Abstract: In this note we have given a direct proof of the result which states that if K is a compact convex subset of a linear Hausdorff topological space E over the reals and T is a monotone and hemicontinuous (nonlinear) mapping of K into $ {E^ \ast }$, then there is a $ {u_0} \in K$ such that $ (T({u_0}),v - {u_0}) \geqslant 0$ for all $ v \in K$.
