  • Description

    Italian Prime Minister-designate, Guilio Andreotti, has been continuing his talks with the country's political leaders in his efforts to form a new government that does not include the Communists.

    SYNOPSIS: Communist Party chief Enrico Berlinguer was the first to meet Signor Andreotti, who's under strict instructions from his own Christian Democratic Party...and advice from Washington, not to give the Communists any Ministerial posts.

    He didn't go into details about his 90-minute meeting with Signor Andreotti....but it's believed he stresses the Communists' view that only a Government of National Unity could cope with Italy's grave economic and social crisis.

    Signor Berlinguer told newsmen he'd stated his party's proposals for a solution to the political deadlock.

    There's still no sign of an early compromise on the crucial question of Communist participation in a new Government....and when Socialist leader, Benito Craxi, emerged after his meeting with Signor Andreotti, he simply told newsmen he and the Prime Minister-designate had discussed the current crisis and he'd put his party's solutions forward.

    But both Signor Craxi and the Communist Party chief told Signor Andreotti that they were insisting on an all-party Government which would give the Communists their first Cabinet seats in Italy since 1947.
