Rome, April 25 - Centre-left Democratic Party (PD)
deputy head Enrico Letta on Thursday urged Beppe Grillo's
anti-establishment 5-Star movement to stop saying No to other
parties to make it easier for him to form a broad coalition
government at the behest of newly re-elected President Giorgio
Napolitano.
Letta told M5S whips that if their "incommunicability"
continued it would become "increasingly frustrating".
But M5S Senate Whip Vito Crimi rejected Letta's plea, saying
they saw no sign of "real change".
Crimi said M5S wanted an "impartial" government, not one
which is likely to include members of the PD and Silvio
Berlusconi's centre-right People of Freedom (PdL) party.
Swept into parliament by a tsunami-like protest vote, M5S
holds the balance of power in the Senate, which the PD failed to
win despite carrying the House.
It shuns the PdL and PD, saying they are equal culprits in a
corrupt and dysfunctional system.
The PdL is riding higher in polls because of Berlusconi's
insistence since the election on the need for a coalition
government, while M5S has slipped because of its refusal to
co-operate and the PD is sliding after the failure of two
presidential candidates exposed deep rifts.
M5S told Letta Italy must reform a "demented" electoral law
- a move that all parties back - while Letta urged them to back
that and other Constitutional reforms because "we can't want to
end the legislature
Letta said he would provide "heat to unfreeze the situation"
and stressed: "If everyone sticks to their positions, the voters
will take it out on us".
