    Background: The campaign for portugal's first elections since the overthrow of the right wing dictatorship ended tonight with a massive communist rally and rally of the socialist left movement MES.

    Nearly 100,000 people packed the May Day stadium in Lisbon to hear communist secretary-general Alvaro Cunhal claim that there were fascists in the provisional government -- a veiled reference to the centre left popular democrats PPD.

    Dr. Cunhal, who spoke for 20 minutes past the midnight deadline set by the electoral law, said the campaign +shows the countries of capitalist europe that broad liberties exist in Portugal+.
