Rome, March 4 - The leader of the
anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S), Beppe Grillo, said
that forging alliances that go against his movement's platform
would be "inadmissible" for him to ensure the stability of a
future Italian government.
"It would be like Napoleon making a deal with Wellington,"
he told the New York Times in an interview published Sunday.
Italy's February 24-25 election produced a hung parliament
with the Democratic Party (PD) leader Pier Luigi Bersani's
alliance having a big majority despite a slim win over
ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom party (PdL) in
the House but no party gaining the upper hand in the Senate
after a huge protest vote for anti-euro and anti-austerity
leader Grillo.
Bersani, said on Friday that he would propose a new
government united by a specific political programme consisting
of seven or eight items.
The PD has ruled out the prospect of forming a grand
coalition with Berlusconi's party and it is trying to reach out
to Grillo, even though the rabble-rouser has said he will not
vote for confidence in a government led by Bersani or
Berlusconi.
In the NY Times interview, he said his goal was to do away
with a system that had "disintegrated the country" and build
"something new" to restore Italy to a true participatory
democracy.
"We can change everything in the hands of respectable
people, but the existing political class must be expelled
immediately," he said.
