  • Description

    The Italian Socialist Party - a close ally of the Italian Communist group - opened this 34th National congress in Milan, Mar 15, to decide on whether to continue their alliance with the Communists, side with the ruling Christian Democrats, or seek a middle way between both.

    Signor Pietro Nenni, the Socialist leader, asked the Party -- Italy's third largest political group - to chart a centre course. Half the congress rose to greet him during the formal opening. The other half were mostly opposed to leaving the alliance with the Communists.

    The issue will be voted on March 19. The outcome is of vital importance to both Signor Nenni as leader and to the Government since it would be unable to carry out its progressive plans to develop post-war Italy without the Socialist's support.

    Among the speakers was Signor Cassinis, Mayor of Milan, who leads one of the few municipal administrations supported by the Socialists and by the Christian Democrats.
