In Rhodesia, the results of the latest opinion poll predict that the ruling Rhodesian Front Party will win a sweeping victory in next week's general election. The main opposition to the Rhodesian Front is the right-wing Rhodesian action Party, which is contesting its first election. That Party was formed earlier this year after 12 Rhodesian Front MP's broke away from the ruling party. Although the opinion polls give the R.A.P. 3 per cent of the vote, their candidates have been campaigning hard. One of them is Mr Ted Sutton-Price, a former Cabinet Minister in the government of Mr. Ian Smith. Like all the other RAP candidates he's against a settlement which would include black majority rule and is in favour of tougher military action against black nationalist guerrillas.
The election, limited largely to Rhodesia's white minority, takes place on Wednesday August 31.
SYNOPSIS: On Tuesday (23 August) he addressed a rally in Salisbury.
