Rome, April 8 - Former comic Beppe Grillo, the
firebrand leader of the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement
(M5S), on Monday denied a reported U-turn in policy over pay for
party MPs.
"Every M5S candidate has pledged to respect the code of
behaviour that contemplates a salary of 5,000 euros gross," he
said in response to media reports of a climbdown over
pre-election promises by candidates that they would half the
basic salary for MPs if elected.
On Monday La Repubblica newspaper cited Grillo as saying
that "6,000 euros was enough".
"How much rubbish can be contained in so few words?" asked
the M5S leader on his blog.
"The code of behaviour has not been discussed, debated or
revised".
However Grillo did not comment on reports by the same
newspaper of dissent among party representatives over how to
manage the 3,500 euro allowance accorded to MPs in addition to
their basic wage, which some say should be partly reimbursed.
