  • Description

    SOUTH KOREA'S ELECTION FOR PRESIDENT - AND THE WINNER AS EXPECTED: GENERAL CHUNG HEE PARK, ORGANIZER OF THE 1961 MILITARY COUP. HIS TERM IS FOR FOUR YEARS.

    GENERAL PARK, 46, RETIRED FROM THE ARMY TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT AFTER RULING THE DIVIDED COUNTRY SINCE OVERTHROWING DR. CHANG'S ELECTED REGIME.

    THE PRESIDENT'S MAJORITY WAS ONLY A MINORITY ONE, OVER HIS NEAREST RIVAL, FORMER PRESIDENT POSUN YUNG, WHO IS REPORTED TO HAVE GONE INTO HIDING.

    MOST OBSERVERS SAY THE VOTING WAS THE FREEST AND MOST ORDERLY IN THE 15 YEARS OF THE REPUBLIC. BUT THEY SAY TURMOIL AHEAD IS LIKELY -- AS THE PARTIES TURN THEIR ATTENTION TO THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY ELECTIONS DUE ON NOVEMBER 26.
