    Background: MEMBERS OF THE NEW ITALIAN GOVERNMENT, LED BY SIGNOR FANFANI, WENT TO THE QUIRINAL PALACE IN ROME FEB 22 TO TAKE THE OATH OF OFFICE. THEY WERE FORMALLY INTRODUCED TO PRESIDENT GRONCHI... AND THE GOVERNMENT "CRISIS" WAS SOLVED.

    FEB 10, SIGNOR FANFANI WAS COMMISSIONED BY THE PRESIDENT TO SUCCEED HIMSELF AS PRIME MINISTER AND FORM THE COUNTRY'S FIRST CENTRE-LEFT GOVERNMENT. THE DECISION ON A LEFTWARD TURN WAS TAKEN RECENTLY AT THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRAT PARTY CONVENTION.

    PRIME MINISTER FANFANI (CHRISTIAN DEMOCRAT) HAS PICKED LARGELY THE SAME TEAM AS BEFORE. HOWEVER, SOME OF THE GOVERNMENT POSTS HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO MEN BELONGING TO THE DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST PARTY AND THE ITALIAN REPUBLICAN PARTY.

    BOTH THESE PARTIES HAVE LEFT-LEANING TENDENCIES. THE NEW GOVERNMENT IS THE FOURTH TO BE LED BY SIGNOR FANFANI; AND IS THE 23RD FORMED SINCE THE COLLAPSE OF FASCISM.
