The elections were the first held under new electoral laws enacted in 1966 that made it possible for more than one candidate to run in a constituency. However, in order to be eligible, all prospective candidates had to accept the program of the Patriotic People's Front,[3] which was dominated by the HSWP. Even under these new rules only nine of the 349 constituencies had more than one candidate.[4]
