    PRIME MINISTER IAN SMITH WON AN OVERWHELMING VICTORY ON FRIDAY (10 APRIL) IN RHODESIA'S FIRST ELECTION SINCE THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE FROM COUNTRY'S NEW REPUBLICAN PARLIAMENT.

    PERHAPS THE GREATEST SURPRISE OF THE ELECTION WAS THAT BLACK CANDIDATES OF THE BI-RACIAL ENTRE PARTY WON SEVEN OF THE EIGHT SEATS RESERVED FOR BLACK VOTERS, ECLIPSING THREE PARTIES THAT ARE EXCLUSIVELY AFRICAN IN MEMBERSHIP.
