The World

June 27, 1989

Ailing Andreas Papandreou, bedridden in an intensive care unit in a Greek hospital, made fresh proposals to coax a Communist-led alliance into a left-wing coalition government. The caretaker Socialist prime minister, hospitalized since Thursday with pneumonia and kidney failure, met Communist leader Harilaos Florakis for 25 minutes. Officials said he made several proposals to win over Florakis, including a plan to satisfy calls for a cleanup of scandals in which Socialist ministers are accused. Papandreou, 70, who was defeated in elections last week, is trying to forge a coalition to prevent the conservative New Democracy Party from coming to power.
