  • Description

    Italy's new premier-designate, Signor Emilio Colombo, today (Sunday) began the task of trying to solve his country's three-week-old political crisis and form the 32nd government since Facist times.

    Last night Signor Colombo, who was Treasury Minister in the outgoing Government, received a mandate from President Guiseppe Saragat to try to form a new centre-left coalition.

    The latest government crisis was precipitated three weeks ago by the shock resignation of Prime Minister Mariano Rumor's Centre-Left Coalition of Christian Democrats, Socialists, Republicans and Social Democrats after only 100 days in office.

    Signor colombo, a 50-year-old bachelor, gave no indication last night of how soon he would start consultations with prospective coalition partners.

    But he's expected to announce a timetable for the talks in the very near future.
