  • Description

    A COMMUNIQUE FROM THE COMMUNISTS PARTY'S POLITICAL COMMITTEE SAID THE GOVERNMENT'S STATEMENT ON THE ALENTEJO DISPUTES WAS DESIGNED TO CREATE AN UNJUSTIFIED CLIMATS OF ALARM.

    THE PARTY WOULD SHORTLY TABLE A MOTION OF CENSURE AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT IF MR MOTA PINTO DID NOT SEEK A MOTION OF CONFIDENCE IN THE FACE OF HIS INCREASINGLY DISCREDITED POLICIES AND LACK OF PARLIAMENTARY SUPPORT, THE COMMITTEE SAID.

    THE ONLY ALTERNATIVES REMAINING WERE THE FORMATION OF A GOVERNMENT ABLE TO EASE THE TENSIONS EXISTING IN PORTUGUESE SOCIETY -- THE COMMUNISTS RENEWED THEIR APPEAL TO THE SOCIALISTS FOR AN ALLIANCE OF THE LEFT -- OR THE HOLDING OF FRESH GENERAL ELECTIONS.

    ONE OF THE KEY PLANNERS OF THE 1974 COUP, MAJOR JOSE SANCHES OSORIO, SECRETARY GENERAL OF THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRAT PARTY (PDC), WHICH IS NOT REPRESENTED IN PARLIAMENT, YESTERDAY CALLED ON PRESIDENT EANES TO RESIGN AND HOLD ELECTIONS.

    PRESIDENT EANES, IN HIS FIRST PUBLIC STATEMENT SINCE THE NEW CRISIS, WILL BE ADDRESSING PORTUGAL'S NATO BRIGADE AT SANTA MARGARIDA BASE NEAR LISBON LATER TODAY.
