    Background: A CROWD OF HUNDREDS GATHERED OUTSIDE COLOMBO'S KACHCHARI BUILDING ON MONDAY TO WATCH MEMBERS ARRIVE TO FILE NOMINATION PAPERS FOR THE CEYLON ELECTIONS SCHEDULED FOR MARCH 22.

    THE PRIME MINISTER, MRS. SIRIMAVO BANDARANAIKE OF THE FREEDOM PARTY, HAD TO HAND OVER HER NOMINATION PAPERS HERE. STRICT SECURITY MEASURES WERE TAKEN AND POLICE WERE CALLED IN TO CONTROL THE CROWD.

    THE EX-MINISTER OF HEALTH, MR. J.P. OBEYSEBERA WAS WILDLY CHEERED BY THE CROWD WHEN HE ARRIVED WITH HIS PAPERS. THEN CAME BADI-UDDIN MOHAMMED, THE MINISTER OF EDUCATION.

    CEYLON'S PARLIAMENT WAS DISSOLVED LAST DECEMBER WITH THE DEFEAT IN PARLIAMENT OF THE GOVERNMENT OF MRS. BANDARANAIKE. THE NEWLY FORMED CEYLON FREEDOM SOCIALIST PARTY IS EXPECTED TO GIVE STRONG OPPOSITION TO THE PRIME MINISTER'S FREEDOM PARTY.
