    PRESIDENT GUIUSEPPE SARAGAT TODAY (TUESDAY) IN ROME SWORE IN A CHRISTIAN DEMOCRAT MINORITY GOVERNMENT LED BY 59-YEAR-OLD SENATOR GIOVANNI LEONE AMID COMMUNIST THREATS OF A SUMMER OF LABOUR AND STUDENT UNREST.

    PRIME MINISTER LEONE'S INTERIM CABINET IS EXPECTED TO RULE ITALY THROUGH THE SUMMER AT LEAST -- UNTIL THE SOCIALISTS HOLD A NATIONAL CONGRESS IN OCTOBER TO CONSIDER REJOINING THE GOVERNMENT.

    THE SOCIALISTS PULLED OUT OF A FIVE-YEAR-OLD CENTRE-LEFT RULING COALITION WITH THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS AFTER LAST MONTH'S GENERAL ELECTIONS, BLAMING THEIR ELECTORAL SETBACK ON THE ALLEGED ANTI-REFORM POLICIES OF THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATS.

    A GENERAL STRIKE IN THE DOCKYARD CITY OF TRIESTE TODAY AND STUDENT UNREST IN PALERMO, PISA, VENICE, BOLOGNA AND AGRIGENTO UNDERLINED THE COMMUNIST THREATS OF A TROUBLESOME SUMMER.

    THE COMMUNISTS CLAIM THE CENTRE-LEFT GOVERNMENT FORMULA HAS FAILED, THE OPPOSE AN INTERIM GOVERNMENT AND CALLED FOR URGENT SOLUTIONS TO URGENT PROBLEMS.

    SIGNOR LEONE, WHO LED A SIMILAR INTERIM GOVERNMENT IN 1963, TODAY BEGAN PREPARING HIS PROGRAMME TO BE PRESENTED TO PARLIAMENT ON JULY 5.
