    Background: Premier-designate Aldo Moro, bowing to pressure from right-wing colleagues, is to seek stronger parliamentary guarantees for the minority Christian Democrat government he proposes forming to end Italy's month-long political crisis.

    Informed sources said Christian Democrat leaders, at a meeting on Friday night (6 February), asked Signor Moro to try to enlist the support of their former allies in Parliament, the Republican Party.

    This followed a strong warning by former Christian Democrat Party Secretary Amintore Fanfani that the Catholic Party ran serious dangers if Signor Moro was allowed to form a government without a strong parliamentary base.

    Earlier, the Christian Democrats had been reported on the point of giving Signor Moro the go ahead to form a government.

    The Party's including the Premier-designate and Party Secretary Benigno Zaccagnini, favours the immediate formation a government on the grounds that the country cannot afford further delays.

    But Signor Fanfani, a leading right-winger, argues that a weak government will be worse than useless.

    Senior members of the Christian Democrat Party arriving at the Villa Camaluccia in Rome on Friday to discuss the formation of a government to be led by premier-designate Aldo Moro. After several hours of pressure from right-wing colleagues at the meeting, Signor Moro decided to seek stronger parliamentary guarantees for the minority government he proposes forming to end Italy's month-long political crisis. Informed sources said the meeting asked Mr. Moro to try to enlist the support of their former allies in parliament, the Republican Party.

    Left-wing Christian Democrats favour the immediate formation of a government on the grounds that the country cannot afford further delays, but leading right-wingers are saying that a weak government will be worse than useless.
