  • Description

    After 48 days without a government, Italy appears to have overcome its latest political crisis. Former Foreign Minister, Siqnor Aldo Moro, announced in Rome on Wednesday (20 November) that he was in a position to form a new government.

    Signor Moro said the new Government, to be presented to Parliament next week, would be a two-party coalition between his Christian Democrat Party -- the dominant party in Parliament -- and the small Republican Party. He said the Socialists and Social Democrats had also pledged their support.

    Signor Moro said he had secured the backing of all four parties for a programme to solve the country's difficult economic problems which had worsened in the past seven weeks in the absence of a government.

    Italy now faces inflation running at 25 percent and unemployment approaching one million people.
