  • Description

    Italy's Socialist Party has moved towards a compromise solution solving a bitter internal leadership feud which has threatened to topple the country's centre-left coalition government.

    But the outcome of conciliation efforts to date is uncertain. The Italian foreign minister, Pietro Nenni, is the party president. The main hope of avoiding a disastrous schism seemed to lie in either an adjournment of a crucial central committee meeting or the calling of a national party congress to elect a new leadership.

    Political observers have predicted that a schism would be followed by the resignations of three "Social Democrat" Cabinet members -- budget minister Luigi Preti; industry minister Mario Tanassi and Merchant Navy minister Giuseppe Lupis.
