Palermo, May 9 - Interim Deputy Parliament Speaker
Antonio Venturino, who ran in the last regional elections under
the banner of the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S), has
been ousted from the group for going against party rules and
keeping part of the retribution he was supposed to forgo.
"Venturino is out of the M5S", comedian-turned-politician
Beppe Grillo, the founder of the group, wrote on the M5S blog.
Giancarlo Cancelleri, caucus leader in the Sicilian
regional assembly, said the decision was taken because Venturino
announced he would no longer forego part of his pay for being in
office, in violation of M5S regulations.
Venturino recently contested M5S's decision not to back an
attempt to form a government by Pier Luigi Bersani earlier this
year, when he still headed the Democratic Party (PD),
criticising the choice as paving the way for the centre-right
People of Freedom (PdL) party to come to power in a the current
grand coalition cabinet.
