Solidarity issues plans for tough new program

The Solidarity free trade union congress showed a more radical face Tuesday with publication of a tough draft program and election results showing successes for militants.

The new program, described by Communist Party observers as tougher than that submitted at the start of the congress, made no mention of socialism and called for a multiparty system, free elections, and social control over the economy.

With elections for the 69 contested places on the union's policymaking national commission almost complete, there were indications that Solidarity's moderate leader, Lech Walesa, would be isolated by a majority that espoused a tougher, more radical line.
