Rome, February 26 - The centre left will not try
to form a grand coalition with the centre right but instead woo
the anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S) in a bid to
break Italy's post-election gridlock in the Senate, a senior
member of the Democratic Party (PD) said Tuesday.
The PD's coalition led by Pier Luigi Bersani got a majority
in the House but fell well short in the Senate because of a huge
protest vote for comedian Beppe Grillo's M5S, prompting
centre-right leader Silvio Berlusconi to suggest the traditional
blocs work together because Italy "deserves to be governed".
Faced with the upper-house paralysis, "we will not forge a
government with those responsible for the disaster we are in,"
said PD Deputy President Marina Sereni, referring to the
Greek-style economic meltdown Italy risked facing before
Berlusconi resigned in favour of technocrat Mario Monti in
November 2011, and a recession deepened by Monti's austerity.
She said Bersani, seen by most pundits as the man President
Giorgio Napolitano will hand a government-seeking mandate to,
would shortly "make a proposal for change aimed at the M5S".
