THE CURRENT POSITION OF THE fNMENT IS THAT PANAMA SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO HOLD ELECTIONS IN MAYND THAT EVERY EFFORT SHOULDADE TO ENSURE THE VICTO OF ARNULFO ARIAS MADRID, LEADER OF THEO PANAMENISTA. THt CUBANS FEEL THAT ARIAS WILL BE SO FIRM IN HIS DEALING WITH BOTH THE EXTREME RIGHT AND THE EXTREME LEFT THAT HE WILL CREATE CONDITIONS WHICH WILL, IN THE LONG RUN, SERVE THE BEST INTERESTS Ofj THE COMMUNIST WORlO.

3- DESPITE INTEREST IN ARIAS'VICTORY AT THE POlJlS,

THE CUBANS ARRANGED FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR THE POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS OF FABIAN ECHEVERS. CARLOS IVAN ZUNIGA, AND VICTOR AVILA, ALL OF WHOM ARE CANDIDATES FOR DEPUTY TO THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY ON THE TICKET OF THE SOCIALIST PARTY.
