    Background: The Indian Parliament on Saturday (8 November) reaffirmed their support for Prime Minister, mrs.Indira Gandhi.

    The previous day she had own an appeal to the Supreme Court against a conviction by the Allahabad High Court on charges of electoral malpractices and corrupt practices.

    The Supreme court judgement removes the High Court bar preventing her from standing for elections for six years.

    The likelihood of elections in February is strengthened, but the state of emergency, declared on June 26 this year, will continue.

    Mrs. Gandhi was greeted by cheering supporters as she made her way to the Central Hall to attend a meeting of her Congress Party. Before her arrival, the Party unanimously passed the resolution, re-affirming its faith in her leadership.
