Turin, April 15 - Gianroberto Casaleggio, the guru
behind the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement of comedian Beppe
Grillo, said the party would back former centre-left premier
Romano Prodi if enough members supported him in an online vote.
"We will always support the decisions of the Movement, so
if the Movement chooses Prodi, we'll vote for him," said
Casaleggio, backtracking on earlier statements.
Hours earlier Casalegio said that M5S shouldn't choose any
of the political candidates that had been shortlisted, which
would rule out Prodi as well as former European commissioner and
Radical Party heavyweight Emma Bonino.
In an online poll Monday, the M5S voted on a shortlist of
candidates to replace Giorgio Napolitano as Italian president
next month, with no deal in sight between the top parties that
emerged from an inconclusive February general election.
The Italian media are looking at the party vote, whose
results will come out Tuesday, for an idea of what a possible
consensus candidate could be for the two parties that came out
just ahead of Grillo in the general election, Pier Luigi
Bersani's centre-left Democratic Party (PD) and ex-premier
Silvio Berlusconi's centre-right People of Freedom (PdL) party.
