RUSSIAN COMMUNISTS WANT SAY IN ECONOMIC POLICY

Seeking to squeeze concessions from President Boris N. Yeltsin, Communist leaders demanded a voice in economic policy and other key issues Tuesday before voting on his candidate for prime minister.

Yeltsin's interim Cabinet is now in its second week, and the Communists in Parliament are showing little inclination to swiftly approve a new premier, who would then form a new government.

Instead, the Communists are threatening to drag out the process and are calling for round-table talks with Yeltsin on how to deal with Russia's massive social and economic problems.
