  • Description

    Visnews filmed June 29 the arrival at Djakarta International Airport of President Sukarno, returning to Indonesia after his two-month world tour in which he visited Europe, America and Asia. He was welcomed by Dr. Djuanda, the Prime Minister, other ministers, diplomatists, and military commanders, headed by the powerful Army chief, Lieut,-General Nasution.

    During his absence, the Army - besides continuing anti-rebel operations in North Celebes - imposed a standstill on political activities after the Constituent Assembly rejected the President's call for a return to the 1945 Constitution, embodying the Presidential concept of "guided democracy" and giving him near-dictatorial powers.

    Soon after arriving, President Sukarno pledged that he would not act as dictator but would take a firm decision, founded on the will of the majority of the people, on the controversial 1945 Constitution.
