News items although Jesse Jackson a prospects of becoming Chicago a next mayor appear to be becoming dimmer and dimmer legislation now pending in the state legislature May make it easier for the next Independent candidate who wishes to run for the office. Sen. Cecil Partee Black president pro tem of the Senate introduced a Bill last week that would require All candidates party backed or not to have a minimum of signatures amounting to 3 per cent of the votes cast for the winning candidate in the last election. As the requirement now stands party candidates need Viz of a per cent of the votes cast for their party candidate in the last election and independents need from 5 to 8 per cent of the total vote cast. The Bill which is expected to have no effect on the april 6 mayoral election is thought to have the backing of mayor Daley. Partee who in introducing the Bill explained that the reason for the original Law was to keep nuisance candidates and crackpots off of the ballot went on to explain that the Law also served to keep legitimate candidates from seeking the office. Partee added a this measure would eliminate the variance which now exists in the requirement for part candidates As opposed to Independent Partee went on to say that his proposed Bill a would make it a candidate such As Jesse Jackson to get on the ballot because it would reduce the number of signatures which would be required on his nominating petitions from 58,000 to about 24,000.�?� the Prospect of mayor Daley supporting legislation which would make it easier for an Independent to take his office from his is not quite As contradictory As it appears. For it is widely believed that if he wins in april this will be his last term and As the Bill will not apply to that election it will have no effect on him. Also it has been suggested that he would support such an Effort As a Way on gaining More Black support. And through the signatures requires would be More also for party candidates neither party would have any trouble collecting the required number.
