The leader of the right-wing Conservative Party warned of a looming collapse of "orderly government" and demanded that President Frederik de Klerk convene an urgent session of Parliament to debate his racial reform initiatives.

The warning Monday by white opposition leader Andries Treurnicht came a day after more than 70,000 supporters of the outlawed African National Congress held the biggest anti-apartheid rally in the country's history, staged with the virtual blessing of the ruling National Party that banned the ANC 29 years ago.Justice Minister Kobie Coetsee rejected Treurnicht's dire projection, declaring the government in control.
