As the Italian election campaign for the June general elections continue, the Communist Party has pressed fears at possible gains by the Radical Party, at their expense. The Radical Party is a small civil rights' oriented, left-wing group. They are expected to win votes from electors disenchanted with Italy's major political parties, including the second placed Communists.
SYNOPSIS: The Secretary of the French Radical Party Monsieur Jean Fabre addressed a news conference in Rome on the issues that most concern the Italian Radical party.
Monsieur Fabre explained that though the Radical Party was founded in Italy it is more than a national Party -- it is considered by its members to be an international group. Therefore the Party is campaigning on more than Italian domestic issues. Their manifesto includes policy on the issue of world hunger and reflects the growing concern about nuclear power throughout the world.
Monsieur Fabre told newsmen that his party was the only one with a clear policy against nuclear power stations. They have proposed a referendum on the issue. The Radical Party supports other ecology part is throughout Europe, who are currently stepping up the campaign against the growing dependence of industrial societies on nuclear power.
