  • Description

    PRESIDENT SEGNI OF ITALY HAS BEEN MEETING LEADING POLITICIANS AND STATESMEN OF THE COUNTRY IN AN ATTEMPT TO SOLVE THE POLITICAL CRISIS. THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN ASKING THEM FOR OPINIONS CONCERNING THE ABILITY OF THE VARIOUS PARTIES TO FORM A STABLE GOVERNMENT.

    AMONG THE POLITICIANS WHO HAVE SEEN THE PRESIDENT ARE 3 EX-PRESIDENTS OF THE CABINET, SIGNORI FANFANI, PELLA AND SCELBA. LATER, HE SAW SIGNOR TOGLIATTI, LEADER OF THE ITALIAN COMMUNIST PARTY.

    IT IS GENERALLY EXPECTED THAT THE PRESIDENT, AFTER HEARING THE VIEWS OF ALL THE PARTIES, WILL CALL ON SIGNOR MORO, SECRETARY OF THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATIC PARTY, TO FORM A CENTRE-LEFT COALITION WITH THE SOCIALISTS, SOCIAL DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS.

    THE LEADER OF THE RIGHT-OF-CENTRE LIBERAL PARTY, SIGNOR MALAGODI, SAID TODAY (FRIDAY) THAT SUCH A CENTRE-LEFT GOVERNMENT CONTAINING SOCIALISTS WOULD BE "EXTREMELY DANGEROUS". HE ADDED THAT IT WOULD BE THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS "QUITTING THE IDEOLOGICAL AND POLITICAL STRUGGLE AGAINST COMMUNISM." SIGNOR MALAGODI WAS SPEAKING TO REPORTERS AFTER CALLING ON PRESIDENT SEGNI.

    LAST TUESDAY, SIGNOR LEONE WENT TO THE QUIRINAL PALACE TO PRESENT THE RESIGNATION OF HIS MINORITY CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT TO PRESIDENT SEGNI. FOLLOWING THE USUAL CUSTOM, THE PRESIDENT ASKED THE OUT-GOING PRIME MINISTER TO REMAIN IN OFFICE FOR THE CONDUCT OF IMMEDIATE BUSINESS.
