Grillo wants online vote for next president


Genoa, February 26 - Voting for the next Italian
president will be done online if the anti-establishment Five
Star Movement (M5S) has its way, M5S leader Beppe Grillo posted
on his blog Tuesday.
Comedian Grillo's M5S claimed 25.55% of the votes for the
House in Sunday and Monday's national elections and took a total
of 162 seats across both chambers of parliament, more than any
other individual party.
"For president of the republic, I would like Dario Fo. He
is a Nobel prize winner with great lucidity. He is an open mind
and we need open minds," Grillo told journalists in Genoa, his
home city.
Fo, 86, has been celebrated abroad but has had to face
fierce conservative
criticism at home.
Fo, a prominent Grillo supporter, is known for his social
satire and tragi-comic but fierce political theatre -
exemplified by his most famous works, Mistero Buffo (1969) and
The Accidental Death of an Anarchist (1970).
He and his wife Franca Rame were banned from state
broadcaster RAI for 15 years starting in 1962 after protesting
the network's censorship of some of their more political work.
Italian President Giorgio Napolitano completes his
seven-year term in May.
