The remarks by Gennady Yanayev were reported the same day that soldiers and security forces a c lo begin joint patrols in all major Soviet cities. Some reformers and leaders in the Soviet republics view the move as a sign of an emerging dictatorship. The vice president also spoke as Gorbachev himself is showing a new hard line in dealing with opposition to Kremlin rule in the Baltics, the press and elsewhere. In past weeks, many reformers have lost faith in Gorbachev as a champion of a more open, democratic Soviet Union. Speaking Thursday at a closed-door session of the party’s Central Committee. Yanayev delivered a strong defense of the party and Gorbachev. De Klerk calls for end to apartheid CAPE TOWN, South Africa (AP) — President F.W. de Klerk today proposed the repeal of all major laws enforcing racial discrimination, and pro-apartheid white lawmakers stunned out of parliament in protest. Thousands of people demanded an immediate end to apartheid in nationwide protests organized by black opposition groups. Speaking to the opening session of parliament, De Klerk said his proposals augur the quick end of racial discrimination. “Should parliament adopt the government’s proposals, the South African statute book will be devoid, within months, of the remnants of racially discriminatory legislation,’’ he said. However, he rejected calls for a multi-racial interim government. He said the whitc-minority government will remain in power until a new constitution is negotiated with the African National Congress and other opposition groups. De Klerk said the government will propose scrapping the last three pillars of apartheid. He said it will call for ending outright the Group Areas Act and the land acts, while modifying the Population Registration Act in advance of its abolition. The Group Areas Act segregates residential areas along racial lines, and the land acts similarly regulate land ownership rights. The population act forces South Africans to register in separate racial groups for political, educational and other purposes. The 17th Annual Cavalcade of latter Shop Harmony Sat.

But the ideals and goals of the party, if cleared of the distortions that appeared in various periods of our history, will remain alive,” Tass quoted Yanayev as saying. It was the first public indication that puny leaders arc questioning Gorbachev’s position as general secretary. Reformers have often criticized Gorbachev’s dual role, and rumors have repeatedly arisen during meetings of the policy-making Central Committee that he might be ousted as pans chief. Separate reports on a meeting of the pans plenum made no mention of Gorbachev, who bv tradition delivers a speech to the Central Committee. The body has about 500 members. Gorbachev repeatedly has denied any plans to leave the party post, arguing the dual role is essential to his ability to govern He rose to power in March ld85 as head of the party, at the lime the undisputed ruling body in the country. He later took on the title of president and gradually reduced the pariy’s power. lf he left the post, Gorbachev still would hold the far more powerful post of president. But it would be the first lime the Soviet leader has not been chief of the Communist Party. Yanayev, the career pony official nominated by Gorbachev in December for the new v ice presidency, said Gorbachev’s combined posts arc “a benefit for both the puny and the stale.” the state news agency Tass reported. “The president needs the Soviet Communist Party, because it is the only powerful party which has a realistic program and enjoys people’s confidence, ll was perceptibly shaken recently, but now it is being regained.
