YELTSIN FOES DROP EFFORT TO TOPPLE HIM

Boris N. Yeltsin's Communist-led opponents decided today to end a campaign to try to force his government from office, saying they were satisfied with the Russian president's efforts to meet their demands.

"All the questions we posed, he promised to solve," said Communist leader Gennady Zyuganov, who leads Parliament's largest faction. "The faction has made the decision to take this issue off the agenda."

The no-confidence motion had been scheduled for a vote Wednesday.

Yeltsin and the Parliament have been sparring for weeks over the 1998 budget and other key issues, such as land reform and a new tax code.
