  • Description

    SUPPORTERS OF THE FORMER ARGENTINE LEADER, JUAN PERON, ALMOST DOUBLED THEIR CONGRESS STRENGTH IN THE COUNTRY'S ELECTIONS ON SUNDAY, BUT FAILED TO WIN CONTROL FROM THE RULING PEOPLE'S RADICAL PARTY. ON FRIDAY NIGHT, THE PERONISTS ENDED THEIR TWO-MONTH CAMPAIGN WITH A MASSIVE RALLY IN BUENOS AIRES.

    THE ELECTIONS WERE CALLED TO FILL 99 SEATS OF THE 192-SEAT CHAMBER OF DEPUTIES. OF THE TOTAL AT STAKE, 96 WERE HELD BY DEPUTIES WHOSE TERMS EXPIRE APRIL 30TH. THREE OTHER BEATS WERE MADE VACANT THROUGH DEATH OR RESIGNATION.

    AT THE CLOSING RALLY ON FRIDAY, THE PERONISTS BITTERLY ATTACKED THE GOVERNMENT'S POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC POLICIES. THE CROWD CHEERED, APPLAUDED AND WAVED BANNERS AND PICTURES OF PERON AND HIS LATE WIFE, EVA.

    WITH ALMOST ALL OF THE RESULTS DECLARED YESTERDAY (MONDAY) IT APPEARED THAT PRESIDENT ILLIA'S PEOPLE'S RADICAL PARTY HAD A SLIGHT LEAD OVER THE PERONISTS. IT WAS ESTIMATED THAT THE PERONISTS WOULD HAVE 43 VOTES IN THE NEW CHAMBER, AGAINST 17 IN THE LAST, AND THAT THE NEW-PERONISTS WOULD HAVE 14, AGAINST 12 PREVIOUSLY. ALTHOUGH IT WILL NOT GIVE THEM A CONTROLLING FORCE, THEY WILL CERTAINLY BE ABLE TO MAKE THEIR ARGUMENTS HEARD.

    THE PEOPLE'S RADICALS ALSO STRENGTHENED THEIR FORCE, BUT TO A LESSER EXTENT. THEY WILL HAVE 75 DEPUTIES IN THE NEW CHAMBER AGAINST 65 IN THE PREVIOUS ONE.

    THE ELECTION HAS MADE THE PERONISTS THE SECOND LARGEST GROUP IN THE CHAMBER. PERONIST LEADERS HAVE AGAIN RENEWED THEIR DEMANDS THAT PERON BE ALLOWED TO RETURN TO THE COUNTRY FROM HIS EXILE IN SPAIN.
