    AT THE MEETING THERE WERE SPEECHES FROM MR. SANTOS CASTRO, DR. MELO E CASTRO, THE LEADER OF THE NATIONAL UNION, AND DR. FRANCO NOGUEIRA, WHO RECENTLY RESIGNED FROM THE FOREIGN AFFAIRS MINISTRY AND IS LIKELY TO BE THE NEW LEADER IN THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY.

    PRIME MINISTER MARCELLO CAETANO IS NOT A MEMBRE OF THE ASSEMBLY, BUT HAS PROMISED THAT IT WILL HAVE MORE THAN ITS FORMER ADVISORY ROLE. HE HAS ALSO PERMITTED OPPOSITION GROUPS MORE FREEDOM THAN IN PAST TO CONTEST THE ELECTION. DR. NOGUEIRA IS CONSIDERED TO REPRESENT A TOUGH LINE OF OPINION OPPOSED TO THE CAUTIOUS LIBERALISATION BEGUN BY DR. CAETANO SINCE HE TOOK OVER FROM DR. SALAZAR.
