    Background: COLONEL HOUARI BOUMEDIENNE, THE LEADER OF THE RULING ALGERIAN NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT, HAS AUTHORISED A NEW MUNICIPAL CODE UNDER WHICH ALGERIA'S FIRST MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS SINCE INDEPENDENCE WILL TAKE PLACE NEXT SUNDAY. BOTH MEN AND WOMEN WILL STAND AS CANDIDATES, IN SPITE OF THE WIDESPREAD HOSTILITY OF MANY ALGERIAN MEN TO THE IDEA OF WOMEN TAKING PART.

    THE ADOPTION OF THE CODE ENDS A SIX-MONTHS CAMPAIGN TO EXPLAIN THE WIDESPREAD POWERS OF THE MUNICIPAL COUNCILS IN THE ECONOMIC, POLITICAL, CULTURAL AND SOCIAL WELFARE AFFAIRS OF ALGERIA. ALL CANDIDATES WILL BE APPROVED BY THE RULING NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT, AND ARMY AND JUDICIARY MEMBERS WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE.

    VOTING WILL BE BY SECRET BALLOT ON THE BASIS OF UNIVERSAL ADULT SUFFRAGE.
