Fiumicino, April 5 - Firebrand leader of the
anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) Beppe Grillo on Friday
said it was "legitimate" that some members should disagree with
official party policy during a meeting with MPs outside Rome.
The gathering at an initially secret location was called
partly to reiterate the position concerning non-alliance with
other parties, championed by top party brass in the wake of
inconclusive general elections in February.
That position has recently been called into question by
some grass-roots M5S supporters and MPs in light of the
resulting failure to form a new government.
"The others are splitting up, not us," said Grillo in
reference to reports of divisions within M5S.
"I don't expect a total convergence of ideas within the
movement, it is legitimate that some people should see things
differently," he added.
The comic-turned-politician reminded MPs that they should
not trust political parties as they had not managed to change
Italy's electoral law when they had the chance.
Introduced by the 2001-2006 Berlusconi government, the law,
dubbed 'pig's dinner', is considered one of the main reasons why
the February elections delivered such an inconclusive result.
