  • Description

    DJAKARTA'S MILITANT STUDENTS WON A PROMISE FROM LT. GENERAL SUHARTO ON TUESDAY TO CALL A SPECIAL SESSION OF THE CONSULTATIVE CONGRESS TO RE-EXAMINE PRESIDENT SUKARNO'S PLACE IN THE LIFE OF THE NATION.

    GENERAL SUHARTO, WHO HAS REPLACED PRESIDENT SUKARNO AS THE REAL HOLDER OF POWER, GAVE THE PLEDGE TO TEN THOUSAND STUDENTS WHO HAD MARCHED ON HIS OFFICE DEMANDING ACTION. HE TOLD THE STUDENTS THAT THE PEOPLE'S CONSULTATIVE CONGRESS WOULD MEET NEXT MONTH TO REVIEW THE PRESIDENT'S PAST AND PRESENT ROLE.

    THE PROMISE REPRESENTED A MAJOR VICTORY FOR THE INCREASINGLY RESTIVE STUDENTS. THE CONGRESS WAS ORIGINALLY TO HAVE MET ON MAY 12TH BUT TH MEETING WAS POSTPONED INDEFINITELY -- APPARENTLY BECAUSE OF RESISTANCE BY PRESIDENT SUKARNO -- AND SINCE THEN THERE HAS BEEN A SWELLING TIDE OF STUDENTS' DEMANDS FOR A MEETING ON JUNE 1ST. GENERAL SUHARTO SAID THAT THE MEETING COULD NOT BE HELD ON THAT DATE BUT PROMISED THAT IT WOULD MET NEXT MONTH ADN THAT IT WOULD CONCLUDE ITS HEARINGS BY JULY 15TH.
