Approved For Release 2003/03/10: CIA-RDP79T00975A1075!PgW001-3 1010 Chile: An impressive victory scored by the Com- munist- Socialist Popular Action Front (FRAP) in a hotly contested congressional by-election last Sunday probably will improve FRAP's prospects in next Sep- tember's presidential election. The election took place in Curico Province which, in the past, has voted strongly in favor of the parties that make up the center-right Democratic Front (FD). Sunday's returns, however, gave FRAP nearly 40 per- cent of the vote, compared -to the 23 percent it polled in 1961. The FD's vote, in contrast, dropped from 56 per- ON cent to 33 percent. The increasingly popular Chris- tian Democratic Party (PDC) came in third with 27 percent of the vote, a substantial improvement over its 1961 showing. The FRAP victory was partially due to the per- sonal popularity of its candidate, a highly regarded physician running for a seat vacated by the death of his father. Despite its local character, however, the Curico election took on the complexion of a national plebescite. All parties spent freely and brought in their national leaders who campaigned vigorously. *In the face of FRAP's upset victory, FD presi- dential nominee Duran withdrew from the race late yesterday, placing the FD leadership in a quandry over naming another candidate with less than six months remaining until the election. His resignation may therefore not be accepted. Conservative Party chairman Bulnes, however, reportedly has said that the FD would break up if FRAP won in Curico. Bulnes predicted that the Conservative and Liberal parties would support PDC's Eduardo Frei, but admitted that the majority of Chile's largest party, the Radicals, would probably turn to FRAP's Salvador Allende.

The resolution adds that if ne- gotiations fail to obtain these ends, the chamber will pass laws abrogating the treaty and agreements. Al- though King Idris and Premier Muntassir have both indicated that they did not fully sympathize with parliament on this issue, unanimous passage of the resolution by the chamber would appear to indicate at least government acquiescence in the resolution. 25X1 17 A&Lr 6 Approved For 4 DAILY BRIEF 4 (Mffl-3 25X1 Approved For Release 2003/03/10 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO07500410001-3 Approved For Release 2003/03/10 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO07500410001-3 1111 0000A,41 OF 0 0 10 11 'All All All Al 1 11 ~~IOXX-O~Xlxz J: Approved For a ease 10 RE?097 7500410001-3 Approved For Release 200-3/03/10 : CIA- 9T00975A007500410001-3 RE z All, A- Jr Ar All, All, A, A, J, 'r J, J, J,
