NORTHERN TERRITORY ELECTIONS

Although final results in the Northern Territory elections

may not be known for a fortnight, and although counting

has not started in two seats and has only just begun in

two others, it is already clear that there has been very

strong support for the Country Liberal Party.

I congratulate the Leader of the Country Liberal Party,

Dr. Goff Letts. The Country Liberal Party will be

returned with a strong working majority which will enable

both the Federal Government and the CLP to continue with

their programmes of development for the Northern Territory

and progress towards self-government.
