Rome, April 3 - An MP for Italy's
anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) has shunned comparisons
with the French National Front (FN) after receiving praise from
the leader of the far right party, Marine Le Pen.
Le Pen on Tuesday praised the "Eurosceptic" stance of M5S
leader Beppe Grillo, who has called for a referendum on whether
Italy should continue to have the euro as its currency.
"It's a bit like having praise from Mussolini," M5S MP
Andrea Cecconi told Turin newspaper La Stampa.
"Le Pen is profoundly Eurosceptic. We aren't. We think the
role of Europe should be discussed and we'd like for the people
to be able to express its opinion in a referendum".
The M5S holds the balance of power in parliament after
capturing a huge protest vote in last month's inconclusive
general election.
