Rome, April 19 - The anti-establishment 5-Star
Movement (M5S) will continue voting for its own candidate to be
the next Italian president, Constitutional lawyer Stefano
Rodota', after the centre-left Democratic Party opted to go for
ex-premier Romano Prodi.
Rodota' was selected following an online vote after making
a shortlist that also included former European Commission
president Prodi.
This led to speculation that that the movement led by
comedian-turned-politician Beppe Grillo might drop their man and
adopt Prodi as their candidate.
But the M5S lawmakers voted to stick with Rodota' at a
meeting on Friday.
Grillo also emphatically ruled out the possibility of M5S
lawmakers switching support to Prodi.
"No one in the M5S has ever dreamed of voting for Prodi and
they won't dream of it in the future either," Grillo told a
rally.
"Our president is Rodota'".
Rodota' is an ex-Communist who was the inaugural chairman
of the first heir to Italy's once-strong Communist Party in
1990.
Rodota', also a former head of the national privacy
watchdog, is seen as more divisive than Prodi for the PD, which
is trying to heal the deep rifts exposed by the failure of its
first candidate, Franco Marini, an ex-Senate speaker.
