  • Description

    SCUFFLES BROKE OUT AT THE START OF A CRUCIAL SOCIALIST PARTY MEETING IN ROME TODAY (TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 3RD) AS LEFT-WING DEMONSTRATORS PROTESTED AGAINST PLANS FOR A NEW FOUR-PARTY COALITION GOVERNMENT IN ITALY.

    THE DEMONSTRATORS, WHO HAD COME FROM ALL OVER ITALY, BRIEFLY PREVENTED SEVERAL LEADING CENTRAL COMMITTEE MEMBERS FROM ENTERING THE CONFERENCE BUILDING.

    ITALY'S CHANCES OF ACQUIRING A COALITION TO REPLACE THE SHAKY CHRISTIAN DEMOCRAT GOVERNMENT OF PREMIER MARIANO RUMOR DEPEND ON THE OUTCOME OF THE MEETING, WHICH IS EXPECTED TO LAST UNTIL THURSDAY (FEBRUARY 5TH). OBSERVERS EXPECT THE DELEGATES TO APPROVE THE COALITION PLAN.

    THE OTHER THREE PARTIES CONCERNED--CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATS, SOCIAL DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS--HAVE ALREADY GIVEN THE GO-AHEAD FOR THEIR LEADERS TO START GOVERNMENT-FORMING NEGOTIATIONS.

    SOCIALIST PARTY SECRETARY, FRANCESCO DE MARTINO OPENED THE MEETING BY URGING THE PARTY'S CENTRAL COMMITTEE TO AUTHORISE THE START OF FORMAL COALITION TALKS.

    IF THEY DO, PREMIER RUMOR'S SEVEN-MONTH-OLD MINORITY GOVERNMENT IS EXPECTED TO RESIGN AT THE END OF THIS WEEK.
