  • Description

    WHITE RHODESIANS HAVE FIRMLY REJECTED THE RULING PARTY'S ATTEMPT TO INTRODUCE POLITICS INTO LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS. THE FINAL RESULTS LAST WEDNESDAY OF WEEK-LONG MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS SHOWED THAT IN WARDS WHERE PREMIER IAN SMITH'S RHODESIAN FRONT CLEARLY CONTESTED THE ELECTIONS, THEY WON ONLY 13 SEATS AGAINST 24 SEATS WON BY INDEPENDENT OR CIVIC ASSOCIATION CANDIDATES.

    ON 28 MARCH THE NATIONAL EXECUTIVE OF THE RHODESIAN FRONT ANNOUNCED THE PARTY WOULD CONTEST LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS ON A NATIONAL BASIS "IN ORDER TO ADVANCE THE PARTY'S PRINCIPLES AND POLICIES."
    THE DECISION SPARKED OFF CRITICISM FROM A WIDE CROSS-SECTION OF THE COMMUNITY, INCLUDING A NUMBER OF REGIONAL BRANCH OFFICIALS OF THE PARTY.
