  • Description

    About six million people - half the electorate - went to the polls today (Sunday) in the main stage of elections to choose over 20,000 deputies for Yugoslavia's federal, provincial and local parliaments.

    Voters will elect 60 deputies to the Federal Chamber of the National Parliament out of 82 candidates chosen by municipal assemblies a fortnight ago. They will also elect about 320 deputies to parliaments of the country's six constituent republics, and about 20,000 councillors to municipal assemblies.

    This year's elections are the second to allow voters to choose between two or more candidates since the present regime took power after the Second World War. But political affiliations were not indicated on ballot papers because Yugoslavia has only one party and all candidates are considered supporters of President Tito's communist regime.

    Officials in Belgrade said that in preparing the elections the authorities had in mind the present trend to separate communists party functions and government administration as much as possible.
