    Background: The differences between Portuguese Socialists and Communists should not be exaggerated, Portuguese Socialist Party leader Dr. Mario Soares said in Naples on Thursday (12 June) Addressing an Italian Socialist Party rally in the southern port at the end of the campaign for Italian regional elections on Sunday (15 June), Dr. Soares said: "You will certainly have read a lot of news about differences between Socialists and Communists in Portugal.
    "But you should not dramatise these differences, which should be considered as normal. I must say, however, that we Socialists are not anti-Communist, but anti-Stalinist. This is something very different."
    He said the Socialists wanted a united Left to "defend our Revolution", but this must be in equality and with mutual respect.
    "For us, Socialism without liberty is a caricature of Socialism," he added.
    "We wish to construct an original Socialism, which takes account of the conditions of reality in Portugal. We do not want to copy the models of others...and -- above all -- we do not wish to repeat the errors of others," he concluded.
