Zimbabwe socialist slate to include whites in '85

The socialist ZANU-PF party of Zimbabwe will field some white candidates in the 1985 general elections, Prime Minister Robert Mugabe said.

And after the elections, the first since pre-independence elections in 1980, his party will take constitutional steps to introduce one-party rule, he said. Mr. Mugabe told the national news agency Ziana that the ZANU-PF party had not put forward white candidates in the 1980 elections because race relations then were polarized.
