Rome, April 9 - 5-Star Movement (M5S) leader Beppe
Grillo on Tuesday demanded parliament's new commissions be set
up immediately and accused the established parties of staging a
"coup".
He said that the claim that the commissions cannot be set
up until a new government is sworn in was a "lie" used by the
centre-left Democratic Party (PD) and ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) to stop M5S introducing
reforms that would truly change the country.
The comedian-turned-politician said these included the
application of an ineligibility law that would exclude
Berlusconi from politics, a conflict-of-interest law and a bill
to scrap public funding of political parties with retroactive
effect.
"The coup started years ago," Grillo wrote on his popular
blog, which gave birth to the Internet-based M5S in 2009.
"It's a coup in broad daylight to delegitimize and empty
parliament. Italy is no longer a parliamentary republic, as
stipulated in the Constitution, but a party republic...
"There is no Constitutional impediment or impediment of any
type that stops them (the commissions) being set up, but the
parties don't want them.
"The reason is simple. Now there's a newcomer to
parliament, an unforeseen event, the M5S, which wants to launch
a series of laws as soon as possible that are like garlic for
vampires to the PD and the PdL".
He said that if the commissions are not set up Italy risked
a year of parliamentary paralysis.
"The country is collapsing and legislative activity is on
hold. It's suicide," said Grillo, adding that the parties should
be put in the hands of special commissioners if the commissions
are not launched.
"Parliament must go back to being sovereign".
