  • Description

    SUPPORTERS OF ORGANISATIONS FORMING WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE 'NEW ORDER' FRONTS DEMONSTRATED IN DJAKARTA YESTERDAY (MONDAY) AND ISSUED AN ULTIMATUM CALLING FOR THE DISMISSAL OF PRESIDENT SUKARNO.

    MORE THAN 20-THOUSAND PEOPLE ATTENDED THE DEMONSTRATION OUTSIDE THE DJAKARTA UNIVERSITY, SEAT OF LONGSTANDING AGITATION FOR THE REMOVAL OF PRESIDENT SUKARNO FROM OFFICE.

    THE DEMONSTRATORS ALSO DEMANDED THAT PRESIDENT SUKARNO SHOULD BE TRIED FOR COMPLICITY IN THE ATTEMPTED COUP D'ETAT OF 1965.

    ON SATURDAY, GENERAL SUHARTO, CALLED UPON MEMBERS OF THE GOVERNMENT TO CAREFULLY WEIGH THEIR DECISION ON THE FUTURE OF PRESIDENT SUKARNO, SAYING THAT THE INDONESIAN ARMY COULD BE PUT IN A DIFFICULT SITUATION IF 'CERTAIN DECISIONS' WERE MADE. THIS WAS TAKEN AS A REFERENCE TO THE ACTIONS WHICH MIGHT BE TAKEN BY SECTIONS OF THE ARMY WHICH ARE STILL LOYAL TO PRESIDENT SUKARNO.

    THE ACTION FRONTS, HOWEVER, HAVE REITERATED THEIR CALL FOR PRESIDENT SUKARNO'S DISMISSAL AND THE INSTITUTION OF LEGAL PROCEEDINGS AGAINST HIM.
