  • Description

    PREMIER AHMED BEN BELLA OF ALGERIA MADE HIS FIRST PUBLIC APPEARANCE SINCE HIS ELECTION AS PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC WHEN HE RECEIVED WAR ORPHANS AT THE 'PEOPLE'S PALACE' IN ALGIERS YESTERDAY (MONDAY).

    SCORES OF YOUNG CHILDREN, WHO LOST THEIR PARENTS IN THE STRUGGLE FOR INDEPENDENCE, GAVE HIM A WARM WELCOME WHEN HE ARRIVED TO JOIN A PARTY GIVEN FOR THE YOUNGSTERS.

    MR BEN BELLA WAS GIVEN SUPREME POWER IN ALGERIA BY AN OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF THE COUNTRY'S ELECTORATE IN A NATION-WIDE REFERENDUM ON SUNDAY. HE WILL HOLD THE TWIN POSTS OF PREMIER AND PRESIDENT FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS.

    (HE ALSO BECOMES HEAD OF THE ARMY AND THE JUDICIARY, AND HOLDS WIDE POWERS OF LEGISLATION BY DEGREE IN EMERGENCIES UNDER THE NEW CONSTITUTION APPROVED BY ALGERIANS LAST WEEK.)
