Trieste, 17 November - Last night at Opčine near Trieste the regional congress of the Party of the Slovenian Community, which began last Sunday in the center of Trieste with a manifesto "We are Trieste", came to a conclusion. Yesterday evening the participants unanimously elected a new party leadership and delegates to the provincial congress, which will take place in Gorica in December or January. At the same time, they approved of a number of congress documents, among which is also a document, in which the regional section of the party formally proposes to the provincial congress that the Slovenian minority in Italy formally accept the new flag of Slovenia as its symbol. They also accepted the appeal to the Italian government for the immediate acknowledgement of Slovenia and compensating measures which would alleviate the economic damage which was caused by the blockade of the European Community.
