  • Description

    The Head of State of the Khmer Republic, Marshal Lon Nol, flew to the provincial capital of Svay Rieng with the announced intention of inspecting refugee camps. Local politicians treated the visit more as an electioneering effort, aimed at raising support for the Marshal's Social Republican Party in the Legislative elections at the beginning of next month. Members of the party were on hand with election slogans when Lon Nol, still suffering the after effects of a serious stroke, made his way to a platform where he was received by Buddhist monks. Opposition parties are now boycotting the elections; it is therefore expected that the Social Republicans will win by a big majority.
