Rome, March 7 - Democratic Party (PD) leader Pier
Luigi Bersani on Thursday called on Beppe Grillo, the former
comedian whose 5-Star Movement (M5S) unexpectedly won 162 seats
in parliament in Italy's inconclusive February elections, to
step up to the plate for the good of the country.
''We're not negotiating, we're simply facing the country
with feasible, realistic proposals. The conditions weren't there
to make them happen in the past, and now they are'', Bersani
said, alluding to the fact that Grillo strenuously opposes
forming a PD-led coalition.
The center-left leader spoke while presenting the first
anti-corruption point of his eight-point platform for a minority
government.
''Grillo does not want diplomacy or seat-swapping, nor do
I. But we must give the country proper answers not veiled
ones'', Bersani continued. ''I don't run around trying to keep
up with everything Grillo says morning noon and night. I don't
respond to insults. He could have channeled the protest a
different way, but he chose the parliamentary route. Now he
needs to take responsibility before the country.''
