    THE ACTING PRESIDENT OF INDONESIA, GENERAL SUHARTO, ON THE EVE OF THE COUNTRY'S INDEPENDENCE DAY ANNIVERSARY DELIVERED HIS FIRST STATE OF NATION SPEECH TO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES IN DJAKARTA.

    HE CONDEMNED THE ABSOLUTE RULE OF DEPOSED PRESIDENT SUKARNO AND PLEDGED THAT THE INDONESIAN ARMED FORCES UNDER HIS GUIDANCE WOULD NEVER SEEK TO ESTABLISH A MILITARY DICTATORSHIP.

    ON THE EVE OF THE 22ND INDEPENDENCE ANNIVERSARY, GENERAL SUHARTO AFFIRMED HIS FAITH IN INDONESIAN CONSTITUTIONAL RULE AND DEMOCRACY.

    IN HIS THREE HOUR SPEECH TO THE PARLIAMENT GENERAL SUHARTO APPEALED TO THE INDONESIAN POLITICAL PARTIES TO ABANDON IDEOLOGICAL DIFFERENCES AND WORK WITH THE GOVERNMENT TOWARDS RECONSTRUCTION.

    DOCTOR SUHARNO WAS ABSENT FROM INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATIONS FOR THE FIRST TIME IN TWO DECADES. HE WAS REPORTED TO HAVE SUFFERED A NEW ATTACK OF KIDNEY TROUBLE WHICH HAS AFFLICTED HIM FOR THE PAST FIVE YEARS.
