  • Description

    PRELIMINARY RESULTS IN SPAIN'S NATIONAL REFERENDUM TODAY (WEDNESDAY) SHOW THAT ABOUT 85 PER CENT OF THE COUNTRY'S ELECTORATE APPROVE OF GENERAL FRANCISCO FRANCO'S PLANS FOR THE FUTURE, AND THE COUNTRY'S NEW CONSTITUTION.

    VOTING WAS HEAVY, AND OVER 19 MILLION PEOPLE WENT TO THE POLLS IN WARM DECEMBER SUNSHINE. WOMEN VOTERS -- NUNS AND HOUSEWIVES -- WERE AMONG THE FIRST TO GO TO THE POLLING STATIONS. IN MADRID, ABOUT 30 PER CENT OF THE POPULACE HAD VOTED BY MIDDAY.

    GENERAL FRANCO, HIMSELF, CAST HIS VOTE AT A SMALL RED-BRICK SCHOOL NEAR HIS PARDO PALACE RESIDENCE IN THE COUNTRYSIDE ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF THE SPANISH CAPITAL.

    THE NEW REFORMS ASSURE STRONG POWERS FOR THE HEAD OF STATE, AND CONFIRM THAT GENERAL FRANCO'S SUCCESSOR WILL EVENTUALLY BE A KING OR REGENT.
