Newspapers representing ultra-right wing and left-wing groups are demanding the government delay calling elections until political parties and the nation are better prepared Other dailies, expressing the present administration ’s views, are calling for elections as soon as possible in order for a democratically elected government to confront the country’s economic and social ills TONITE!
