  • Description

    Portugal's new Government met for the first time on Tuesday (23 September) as a row blew up over the news media and the Socialists said foreign currency reserves had run out.

    The Communists, in an overnight statement denounced within hours by the Socialist Party, rejected a socialist-backed plan for multi-party control of the press.

    The warning on currency reserves came from Socialist leader Mario Soares. On his departure for Switzerland he told newsmen that the Government would have to use its gold reserves as a basis for certain financial operations needed "to keep our heads above water".

    Dr. Soares also went on to describe the new Government, in which his own party has four ministers, and the Communists one, as a balanced reflection of the national situation.
