Kiesinger Said to Disagree with Benda on Banning of Npd As Unconstitutional

West German Chancellor Kurt Georg Kiesinger indicated today that he did not share the view of Interior Minister Ernst Benda that the government should act to have the extreme right-wing, reputedly neo-Nazi National Democratic Party (NPD) banned as unconstitutional. Dr. Kiesinger implied that he did not regard the evidence uncovered in an exhaustive investigation by the Interior Ministry as sufficiently concrete to prove that the NPD intended to destroy the Constitution.
