  • Description

    EAST GERMANS TODAY (SATURDAY) VOTED ON A NEW SOCIALIST CONSTITUTION. THE PLEBISCITE IS EXPECTED TO RESULT IN OVERWHELMING APPROVAL FOR THE CONSTITUTION, WHICH WILL OFFICIALLY DEFINE EAST GERMANY AS A SOCIALIST STATE.

    THE FINAL DRAFT OF THE CONSTITUTION WAS DRAWN UP AFTER 750,000 PUBLIC MEETINGS. MORE THAN 12,000 ALTERATIONS WERE SUGGESTED AND 118 CHANGES MADE BEFORE APPROVAL OF THE FINAL DRAFT.

    COMMUNIST LEADER WALTER ULBRICHT HAS URGED THE COUNTRY'S 12 MILLION VOTERS TO GIVE A "CHEERFUL YES" TO THE CONSTITUTION WHICH, HE SAYS, MEANS WESTERN EUROPEAN COUNTRIES CANNOT IGNORE EAST GERMANY FOREVER.
