  • Description

    Prime Minister Nguyen Cao Ky, a Vice-Presidential candidate in next month's elections in South Vietnam, has been storming up and down the country to try and catch votes for himself and General Thieu, the Head of State. The two military leaders are running on the same ticket.

    In a Saigon suburb yesterday (Saturday), Marshal Ky spoke at a ceremony during which twenty Korean-built buses were handed over to the city.

    The day before, in Da Nang, he said that a government weak on Communism would spell ruin for South Vietnam. He went on: "Under a government that is weak on Communism we will not have any country left and under a government of the rich, exploitation will continue."
    Marshal Ky said achievements of the military government in the last two years had been to bring higher salaries and benefits to the workers, raise living standards, and ensure military security.

    With two weeks to go before election day (September 3), some of the candidates are accusing the Ky regime of rigging the elections, while the powerful Buddhist leaders remain divided over who they'll support.
