Rome, April 5 - MPs representing the
anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) of Genoa comic Beppe
Grillo were on Friday holed up in a villa near Fiumicino south
of Rome for a meeting with their firebrand leader to discuss the
party's pledge of non-alliance and other policies.
Initially the location had reportedly been kept secret even
from participants themselves to deter media coverage of the
potentially heated debate.
M5S took over 25% of the vote in recent general elections
and now effectively holds the balance of power in a hung
parliament.
Grillo has maintained a policy of non-alliance with other
political formations - particularly the centre-left Democratic
Party (PD) of Pier Luigi Bersani, which got a tidy majority in
the lower chamber of parliament thanks to a winner's bonus but
failed to clinch a working majority in the equally powerful
Senate.
But there has been growing criticism from grass-roots M5S
supporters over a stance that has helped prevent the formation
of a new government.
