Italy Gets 45th Postwar Regime

August 01, 1986|Associated Press

ROME — Socialist Bettino Craxi today formed Italy's 45th postwar government, ending a seven-week crisis sparked by feuding between his party and the dominant Christian Democrats that toppled the previous government.

Craxi, who returns as prime minister, resurrected the five-party coalition that ruled before the crisis and set a longevity record in postwar Italian politics by being in power 34 months. A vote of confidence for the new Cabinet was expected in Parliament next week.
