Summary note
A file of correspondence and reports concerning political developments in Bulgaria. The documents discuss the holding of elections for a new Grand National Assembly, in which 99.48% of the electorate voted for the ruling Bulgarian Communist Party -- a speech by Valko Chervenkov, the leader of Bulgaria, outlining future economic and foreign policy developments -- the resignation of Chervenkov and his replacement with Todor Zhivkov -- and the election of a new Central Committee of the Bulgarian Communist Party. The documents also contain an American report on "Tensions within the Soviet Captive Countries" -- a translation of a new Statute of the Bulgarian Communist Party, which is described as bearing a "striking similarity to that of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union" -- a report on housebuilding in Bulgaria -- and a comment on the apparent kidnap of two Bulgarian students who had been living in Austria.
