Grillo launches 'not in my name' political manifesto


Rome, November 22 - Genoese gadfly comedian Beppe
Grillo, leader of the antiestablishment Five Star Movement
(M5S), launched his election 'manifesto' on Thursday under the
title 'Not in My Name'.
The declaration - published on the leader's blog - contains
30 binding policy statements that read like a diatribe against
the political establishment.
"Not in my name will holders of high public office receive
luxury salaries. Not in my name will false accounting still be
permitted, or will Italy not have an anti-corruption law, a law
against conflicts of interest, or will anyone be elected to the
premiership without having been legitimised by the popular
vote," wrote Grillo.
The comedian also inveighed against political parties and
the procedure for changing the electoral law, which is currently
undergoing revision in parliament and which he believes should
be subject to popular referendum.
M5S has made recent gains in the polls amid growing public
disaffection with the current party system.
Recent figures gave the movement around 20%, second only to
the centre-left Democratic Party which was polling around 30%.
The centre-right People of Freedom party of ex-premier
Silvio Berlusconi is trailing third with just over 15%.
