The World

July 06, 1986

Amintore Fanfani, the president of the Italian senate, met for an hour with caretaker Prime Minister Bettino Craxi in an effort to resolve a dispute over who will lead a new government following the collapse of the longest-standing of 44 Italian governments since World War II.

Craxi tendered the resignation of his coalition June 27 after rebels in his government voted against him on a finance decree.
