    Background: THE UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL HAS REJECTED A LAST-MINUTE PROPOSAL TO HAVE TODAY'S (FRIDAY) ELECTIONS IN RHODESIA CANCELLED. INSTEAD, IT ADOPTED A RESOLUTION REQUESTING BRITAIN "TO TAKE ALL NECESSARY ACTION TO PREVENT THE UNILATERAL DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE" BY MR IAN SMITH'S GOVERNMENT.

    THE PROPOSAL CALLING ON BRITAIN TO HAVE THE ELECTION CANCELLED CAME FROM THE SOVIET UNION YESTERDAY. THIS MONTH'S PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL, MR. RADHAKRISHNA RAMANI, OF MALAYSIA, CALLED THE VOTE:-
    THE SOVIET DELEGATE, DR. NIKOLAI FEDORENKO, ALONE VOTED FOR THE AMENDMENT. BRITAIN AND HOLLAND VOTED (SOF) AGAINST, WHILE THE EIGHT OTHER MEMBERS ABSTAINED (ALSO SOF).

    MR. RAMANI ANNOUNCED THE RESULT:-
    THIS RESOLUTION WAS PROPOSED JOINTLY BY THE IVORY COAST, JORDAN AND MALAYSIA. THE SOVIET UNION JOINED BRITAIN, THE UNITED STATES AND FRANCE IN ABSTAINING. THE OTHER MEMBERS VOTED OF IT, AS MR. RAMANI ANNOUNCED:
    (DR. FEDORENKO SAID HE ABSTAINED BECAUSE THE RESOLUTION WAS "VERY WEAK", AND DID NOT MEET THE NEEDS OF THE SITUATION IN RHODESIA).
