This reflects the aim of a resolution sponsored by 16 African and Asian nations that calls for convening Parliament to form a national government. This could also be in the Soviet interest. Observers believe that if Parliament meets now it would favor Communist-backed Antoine Gizenga as premier over Joseph Eeo who has been appointed by President Joseph Kasavubu. Kasavubu has refused to reconvene Parliament ever since it tried to override his firing of Patrice Lumumba as premier last September. The assembly wound up its two- week Congo debate Friday night.
