  • Description

    More than 2,000 delegates attending the Rumanian Communist Party Conference in Bucharest on Wednesday July 19 have given their full support to President Nicolae Ceausescu's call for tighter ideological discipline and increased production -- and elected 20 new members of the party C???ntral Committee.

    The conference is a major debate covering foreign and domestic policies in the five years between Party Congresses.

    In a six-hour report, the President reviewed Rumanian and world affairs and proposed several measures to propel Rumania from a developing to an advanced technological nation over the next 15 years.

    He called on the Rumanian worker -- in a series of v???h???ment exhortations which left him hoarse -- to fulfil & five-year economic plan and said this would not need massive new investments because economic gains could be achieved by making better use of existing plant and equipment.

    President Ceausescu said the party was indissolubly united. Doubts over his ideological programme for the shaping of a new socialist man appeared to have been ???radicated as the President's speech was approved with several standing ov???tions.

    Mr. Ceausescu has augmented his own dominating position inside the Rumanian Communist Party by taking over the chairmanship of a supreme economic council which will set the economic guidelines of the country until 1987. He will also conduct a commission which has been appointed to draw up a party programme covering all aspects of the party's development over the next few decades.

    The election of the 20 new members to the Central Committee -- said to include the President's wife, Mrs. El???na Ceausescu -- was explained by the growth of the party's overall membership to nearly two-and-half million people.
